Sweet & Delicious Marinara Sauce
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 small or medium sized onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 carrot, diced small
8-10 leaves of fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup frozen peas*
salt & pepper to taste
Over medium heat, sauté carrot in olive oil until soft. Then add the onion and cook until they turn translucent. Throw in the garlic and let it cook for about a minute.
Add the tomatoes, basil, salt, and pepper. Cook covered over low heat for about five minutes, or until the sauce starts to bubble a little. Don't let it cook for too long or it won't taste fresh!
*The carrot makes this sauce pretty sweet, but if you want it even sweeter toss some frozen peas in towards the end.
