My version of Grandma’s Tomato Sauce

gma sauce FIXATE

I think I’m gonna start making a big batch of this to swim in it. I LOVED it. I know what’s in it and the flava is spot on! The store bought stuff these days just aren’t as good and are usually packed with sugar. There are a couple I buy though, Newman’s organic and there’s another organic brand that I can’t remember the name of right now.

Here’s the recipe!

– 2 tbsp of oil (I used EVOO)

-1 sweet onion diced

-4 cloves of garlic minced

-1-6 oz can of tomato paste

-1/4 cup red wine

-2-28 oz cans of whole peeled tomatoes, I blended them up in batches in my magic bullet blender

-2 tbsp honey

-1 tsp sea salt

-1/4 tsp black pepper

3 tbsp fresh chopped basil, or 1 tbsp of dried basil

I heated the oil in a large pan and tossed in the onion and cooked it until it was translucent. Then I added in garlic and tomato paste, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let it cook…I only cooked mine for 30 min because of time but the longer it cooks, the better the flavor! If you cook it for longer than an hour, you’ll wanna add in more water so it doesn’t get too concentrated and thick.

This recipe is VERY close to the original in the Fixate cookbook. For all of you 21 day fixers, a serving is 1/2 cup and it counts for 3 green and 1/2 tsp.  Again, you’re gonna wanna swim in this action 🙂  But instead of swimming in it, I served it over some spaghetti Squash with some grass fed beef.
