No Tomato Sauce, Sauce

Serves: 2 – 4
Prep Time: 20 min

I love this recipe because it looks and tastes VERY much like a good Italian tomato sauce! I smiled a lot when I first tasted it!


  • ¼ tsp dried basil or oregano
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp savory
  • pinch salt
  • 1 to 3 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 4 oz. jar roasted and marinated red peppers, pureed
  • 2 to 3 tsp dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • ½ cup minced onion

Sauté onions (minced adds a more tomato-ish texture) and garlic in the olive oil until onions are tender.

Add parsley, savory and basil (or any combination) salt and sugar (dark brown is best). Stir. Add the pureed red peppers, lemon juice and red wine and simmer until the sauce thickens.

Serve with pasta of your choice and enjoy! I really like capers, feta and roasted pumpkin seeds on top!
