Marinara Sauce

Servings: makes about 4 cups

2 tablespoons water
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
½ pound mushrooms, chopped
2 15 ounce cans tomato sauce
1 15 ounce can chopped tomatoes
1 ½ tablespoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon basil
dash sea salt, if desired

Place the water, onions, garlic and mushrooms in a large pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions soften and begin to take on a golden color, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Do not cover. Serve over pasta.

Hints: This may be made ahead and reheated. It also freezes well.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
