Prattle has to get ready for her trip to Greece, so here is a great light sauce for all wheat pasta or chicken!
Biggest Loser Main Event Marinara Sauce
olive oil spray
1 cup minced yellow or white onion
2 tbsp freshly minced garlic
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp no salt added tomato paste
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Salt to taste
Spray medium nonstick saucepan with the olive oil spray and place over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just becoming tender (they should not be brown), 4-6 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and with a wooden spoon stir in the tomatoes, water, tomato paste, honey, oregano, basil, and pepper flakes until well combined. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for at least 1 hour. Season with salt, of needed.
