I don't know if I've ever expressed this here but I LOVE spaghetti! I don't know why but it's just one meal that always tastes great to me. I can have it every day of the week if it wasn't loaded with carbs :)

I didn't make my own noodles this time but I did make my own very simple marinara sauce. And I got to use my new blender again! Don't you love free stuff??

This marinara was tasty and easy to make. I literally threw everything together in the blender, hit puree, and heated it. I than poured it over al dente noodles, sausage and olives (topped with Parmesan, of course!). Oh, and did you see my make-shift garlic bread... two words: hamburger buns :)

Marinara Sauce
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 cup white wine (I omitted)
In a food processor (I used my blender) place tomatoes, tomato paste, chopped parsley, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.

In a large skillet over medium heat saute the finely chopped onion in olive oil for 2 minutes. Add the blended tomato sauce and white wine (I omitted).

Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top over pasta of your choice and enjoy!
