I have been a big slacker when it comes to posting recipes! It’s been 3 days! I hope everyone has survived without some Jamie food posts in their day!
I would have to say that my most favorite thing to make is marinara sauce. There are SO many different things you can do, and add and one ingredients can make it taste totally different (in my opinion) So I made up another quick marinara sauce the other day and I basically went in my fridge to see what I could find and see how I would make it and this is what I came up with…
Take some pasta any kind you like and follow the instructions on the box on how to make it…
Then start by chopping up half a red onion
Then preheat a sauce pan on the stove to med heat and pour in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, throw the chopped onions in
then chop up 1/2 a cup of green bell pepper, add to pot with onions, stir
wash three, large mushrooms, can be Crimini, button or portobelo mushrooms
Chop up into cubes
throw in with onions, and green bell pepper.
then dice up 3 cloves of garlic, then throw in with onion, green bell pepper, mushrooms
Then add some spices: I added in balsamic vinegar, onion salt, kosher salt, red pepper flakes, garlic salt, basil, oregano, thyme, freshly cracked black pepper (I did all by taste) maybe start with a teaspoon of each, except for the salts, do 1/4 tsp of garlic,onion, and kosher salt.
Stir and Saute for about 2 minutes, until you really start to smell the garlic
then add in 2 15 oz cans of tomato sauce
stir everything up and add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, then add in the MOST important ingredient of ALL…
stir and taste, add more spices if needed
then simmer for about 15-20 minutes let the flavors blend together and become good friends.
then put some pasta on a plate and top with the yummy sauce you just made…top with fresh, chopped Italian, flat leaf parsley…
