Pasta Sauce

I have been wanting to document some of our favorite family recipes. Finally a snow day, which is nothing short of a miracle in Texas, drove me to write up the recipes. The pictures were in my draft folder for a long long time now waiting to be published. This recipe is adapted from Jamie Oliver. Until I read his book, The Food Revolution, I did not realize the pasta sauce is a real easy recipe to make and such a healthier option over feeding kids with the bottled sauce with unknown ingredients and preservatives.


4 Tomatoes
4 Cloves of Garlic
1 Tsp Dried Oragano leaves
1 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
2 Tsps Olive Oil


1. Heat a sauce pan and add olive oil
2. Add the dried oregano leaves. Crush it with your palms before dropping it into the oil to release the flavors. This is a common trick I learned watching numerous cooking shows. Works great on methi leaves, and other dried herbs.
3. Chop the tomatoes and add it to the pan along with grated garlic and red chilli powder. Add a cup of water.
4. Let it cook and simmer for a about 30 minutes until a sauce like consistency is attained. Add salt.
5. Use it right away or store in a refrigerator for a day or two.
