Quick Fresh Tomato Sauce

A deliciously fresh-tasting cooked tomato sauce! Try serving it over spaghetti or linguine. This is the kind we find in the fancy Italian restaurant - as easy as it is, we can make it ourselves.

What You'll Need

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (2 ounces) anchovies (undrained), chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 to 8 fresh tomatoes, peeled and diced, or 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons stuffed green olives, coarsely chopped

What to Do

  1. In a saucepan or large skillet, sauté the garlic, celery, red pepper, and anchovies in the olive oil until just slightly soft. Add the tomatoes, then the basil, oregano, crushed red pepper, and green olives.

  2. Cook over low heat for about 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

  3. Makes enough for 1 pound of pasta.

Weeknight Shrimp Fried Rice

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
