Zucchini Noodles with Fresh Tomato Sauce
Fresh Tomato Sauce Easy Preparation!
- 2 lbs ripe tomatoes
- 2 cloves garlic
- 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
Core, chop tomatoes. Thinly slice garlic.
In medium frying pan over low heat, cook garlic in olive oil until it’s soft, about 5 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients. Increase heat to medium-high.
Cook until tomatoes start to bubble. Reduce heat to low, so the sauce gently simmers.
Cook, uncovered, undisturbed, until oil separates from sauce, and most liquid has evaporated, about 30 minutes.
Clean Cooking Tips:
This would make a PERFECT vegetarian meal, over zucchini noodles.
I use my Paderno Spiralizer purchased from Amazon, to make the noodles.
I also toss my zucchini noodles in a frying pan with a dash of olive oil, for several minutes, just to warm.
I added my lean ground meat, which was cooked separately with onions & garlic (I wanted the protein)
You could add your cooked, drained meat to the tomato sauce during the last several minutes cooking time.
