Marinara Sauce

If fresh tomatoes aren't available, you can substitute a 28-ounce can of whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped, plus a 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes, undrained, instead.Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add tomato, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in basil and parsley, and cook 1 minute. Serve over pasta. To balance the flavor and thicken the sauce, add 3 tablespoons of tomato paste and 1 teaspoon of sugar to the canned tomatoes.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup sauce and 1 1/3 cups pasta)
