Mint Tomato Sauce

Prep time:  20 minutes
Prep notes: 
Quick and easy prep for busy weeknights; prepare ahead. Use organic ingredients when possible. Be especially careful with canned tomatoes. Look for non BPA cans.
Cooking time:  20 minutes
Yields:  6 people

1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 c white wine
1 – 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
handful of fresh mint and parsley (1 tbs each, if using dried)


Saute onion and garlic in the olive oil till transparent. Add wine to deglaze the pan. Allow to cook down for 5 mins. Add tomatoes and spices. Cover and simmer 15 mins.


This versatile sauce goes well with lamb meatballs, but is especially delicious over spaghetti squash or roasted eggplant. Sprinkle with a little freshly grated Parmesan for a little extra flavor.
