Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce

I can't believe how easy this great tasting pasta sauce is to make. (courtesy of an old Italian family recipe) Making it yourself ensures NO PRESERVATIVES, low in sodium, the right oils and making it with your own home grown organic herbs like fresh sweet basil. (gluten & lactose-dairy free)
Add favorite meat balls (lean, grass-feed ground beef in the follicular phase and organic ground chicken or turkey in the luteal phase) I like adding mushrooms in with the garlic too!

Makes a large Pot:

-2 15oz can Organic Tomato Sauce
-2 15oz cans Organic Diced tomatoes (I like a few chunks of tomatoes in my sauce)
-1 large 12oz can Tomato Paste or 2 6oz cans
-2 cups water
-2 cloves pressed fresh garlic
-2 teaspoons of dried oregano or Italian spice blend
-3 to 4 fresh Sweet Basil leaves, minced
-1 Tbs sugar or stevia if sugar free
-1 teaspoon dried or fresh parsley
-1 Tbs. olive oil (add an additional Tbs if desired, I keep it at 1 for lower calories)

1) Place the olive oil in the pot first and add crushed/pressed garlic and cook for a minute in hot oil.
2) Add the tomatoes, oregano or Italian spice blend, and stir.
3) Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a slow boil.
4) Turn heat down to low, cover and let simmer for an hour. If you have time to let it cook on low for 3-4 hours.
Add water for desired thickness if needed.
