Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced shallots (about 1)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • Dash of crushed red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce

1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add shallots, rosemary, red pepper, and garlic; cook 2 minutes or until shallots are tender, stirring constantly.
