Fresh vegetables are cooked with herbs to create a flavorful and savory sauce for pasta, and other dishes, too!

Ingredients

  • 8 tomatoes (ripe)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup green pepper (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup carrot (thinly sliced, or shredded)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (dried)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil (dried)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic (minced or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 6 cups pasta (cooked)
  • 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

1. Wash the ripe tomatoes. Cut out stem ends. Chop into small pieces and set aside in a large bowl.

2. In a large pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add onion, green pepper, carrots and garlic. Stir-fry until tender, about three minutes.

3. Add seasonings and tomatoes. Bring to a gentle boil.

4. Lower heat and simmer gently, uncovered, until tomatoes turn to a sauce, about 40 minutes. Serve over freshly cooked pasta.
