This works great as a super fast, dirt cheap marinara sauce recipe and doubles as a great pizza sauce recipe as well.
1 can tomato paste
1 Tbs Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic (or more, depending on your taste), minced
1 Tbs (olive) oil
2 c boiling water
1/2 diced tomato (*Optional, if you have it for heartiness)
This one is very quick and easy to prepare. First, Heat the oil, and sauté the garlic BRIEFLY. Add all of the remaining ingredients and bring it to a boil, immediately reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes.
If you have the chance, refrigerate this for a day or 2 for best flavor.
