Red Wine Marinara

Leave a comment

A simple sauce that is so good. I like to serve it over a pasta with ridges so that the sauce really sticks to the pasta. I also use my stick blender instead of putting the tomatoes in the food processor.

Red Wine Marinara

1 29 oz can whole tomatoes
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1/3 cup red wine
1 shallot, minced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
generous dash of freshly ground pepper

Crush tomatoes in a food processor or blender. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until bubbly. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Serve over your favorite pasta such as angel hair, spaghetti or linguine.

I found this recipe on ~ which is a great site for down to earth recipes.
