If you're ever looking to put a little extra love in to your spaghetti, how about making your own marinara and meatballs?? It will be so worth it!
How to make your own marinara sauce -
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 TBSP Tuttorosso tomato paste
1 (35 ounce) Tuttorosso peeled plum Italian style tomatoes
1/4 tsp sugar
5 whole basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in skillet, add garlic and cook over medium heat until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring for one minute.
Add the plum tomatoes, sugar, and basil. Stir to combine and then add salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. Simmer the sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally until thickened and reduced, about 30 minutes. Season again with salt and pepper. Discard basil and garlic.
Serve over your favorite spaghetti noodles (our favorite is Dreamfields, a lower carb pasta) with these yummy turkey meatballs and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top!
