I love summer! And I love tomatoes…especially juicy beef steaks grown in New Jersey. Tomatoes are an excellent source of lycopene, which is a carotenoid pigment. That is why tomatoes are so rich in color. Tomatoes are also high in antioxidants and may play an important role in bone health. I hope you enjoy this fresh and simple tomato sauce recipe!
In a skillet, heat olive oil. When oil begins to shine, add onions. Cook until soft. Add chopped tomatoes and season well with salt and pepper. Add red wine and herbs. Cover and bring to a simmer approximately 1 hour or until ready to serve.
Toss cooked pasta and mozzarella with sauce. Enjoy!
I love to pair the pasta with a hearty vegetable like broccoli. Did you know that broccoli has a huge impact on our body’s detoxification system?
