One of those days…

January 18th, 2010

Ah Monday… of the second week of class… so much to do… I came home needing something warm, comforting and filling…

Inspired by Smitten Kitchen and Use Real Butter…I looked in the pantry and came up with my own quick tomato sauce… served over tortellini… it was pretty delicious!  Now… back to work!

My Quick Tomato Sauce

1 garlic clove, sliced
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 tomato, chopped
1 cup tomato sauce, canned
1/2 cup water
1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs olive oil
1 tea Italian Seasoning
salt & pepper

1. Put butter and olive oil in a sauce pan, saute the garlic and onions.
2. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato sauce and water.
3. Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper (Go light on the salt as the sauce may already have some).
4. Simmer for 20 minutes until it thickens.

    Yeaaaaah. We start classes tomorrow, and I’m cross-enrolled in a class at the Business school. Jumping back into school on the deep end. Sigh. Here’s to a semester in which the classes are fulfilling, the nervous breakdowns are few, the delicious meals are innumerable.
