Foodie Friday


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


Makes 7

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.
