Shape Up Saturday Series: Tomato Sauce

Uncategorized

Ok, so make sure you take down this recipe because this
sauce is going to make an appearance in more than one recipe that I have
planned for you.  Now, this tomato sauce
is 21 day fix approved, so it’s healthy! 
I wanted to start introducing some recipes for the Shape Up Saturday
Series because your diet is a bulk of your health and fitness routine.  I can work out as much as I want but I would
not have achieved the results I did without eating the proper foods.  Of course I have a cheat meal every once in a
while, but I don’t eat junk food on a daily basis. 

What you’ll need.
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Onion Chopped (I usually only use half I’m not a
    huge fan of onions)
  • ¼ cup Red Wine
  • 4 cloves Garlic (chop then to really small pieces)
  • 1 6oz can of tomato paste (no salt)
  • 2 (28oz) cans of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Agave
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt (I usually use a pinch)
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 (3oz) Parmesan Cheese
  • Finely Chopped Basil if you’d like.

Ok, so how do you make this delicious sauce?
  1. Heat Oil in large saucepan over medium high heat
  2. Add onion; cook stirring frequently until onion is
    translucent
  3. Add garlic and tomato paste, stir constantly for 2-3
    minutes.
  4. Add wine, stir constantly for 2-3 minutes
  5. Add canned tomatoes (you can blend these or puree them on
    your own, I usually blend but only for a short amount of time because I like
    chunky tomato sauce), agave, salt, and pepper. 
    Bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat to low stirring occasional for 3 minutes.
  7. Add cheese, stirring occasionally for 1 hour.
  8. If you’d like to add any basil or spices this would be when
    you would do it.  Just make sure to mix
    it well into the sauce since it’s being added last.
