Garlic & Spinach Tomato Sauce

Sometimes simple is the way to go !

You need: SpinachGarlicTomatoSauce2

Olive oil

1 white onion

3 green onions

4 garlic cloves

5 Roma tomatoes

680 ml pureed tomatoes

5 cups fresh spinach

Salt & pepper

Do this: 

Cover your pan with olive oil and heat.

Dice the onion. Slice the garlic cloves and green onion.

Add to the pan on low heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes.

In the meantime dice all the tomatoes and keep the juices. Add to the pan once onions and garlic are soft.

Cover and let simmer on low for 5-10 minutes.

Then add in the pureed tomatoes, keeping on low, simmer for 20 minutes. You can puree your own, or use a canned option.

Then add in the spinach and simmer until shriveled.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

This makes enough pasta sauce to serve 5-6 people.

Serve over pasta, I suggest spaghetti. I find homemade pasta sauce tastes better a few days after preparation, so if I want to serve this for Sunday dinner, I’ll make it Friday night.

Easy, flavourful and keeps well in the freezer.
