homemade tomato sauce

Tonight I had this conversation with my little boy while I was tucking him into bed:

“How do you know I love you?” I asked him
“You tell me 2 billion times a day,” he replied.
“If I didn’t tell you, how would you know?  I asked.
“I can feel it in your hugs,” he said.

That really got me.  I try not to take things for granted in life.  Like my children.  Or hot showers.  Or glass bottles that I get to keep after I’m finished with the food inside.  It’s the little things in life that make all the difference really.

Here’s a little recipe that’s making a difference in my kitchen.  It’s my new go to sauce for chili, bean dishes and pasta.  The boys scarf it down and I love its versatility and flavor.  The husband doesn’t mind it either, in fact, he seems to likes it.

Homemade Tomato Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil
  2. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 10 minutes
  3. Add cherry tomatoes, water, garlic, oregano, chili and salt
  4. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes over medium heat until tomatoes are soft and beginning to fall apart
  5. Serve

Stay tuned.  In the next few weeks I will post warm and comforting entree dishes over which you can serve this easy sauce.
