Jimmy’s Famous Marinara Sauce/Make A Cow Happy

It is time for meatless Monday, feel good about yourself, farm animals, and the environment. 

Today’s Meatless Monday recipe is my signature dish.  It’s fantastic in the taste department, but very simple to make and inexpensive.  It’s the best tasting spaghetti sauce ever!

Jimmy’s Famous Marinara Sauce
2 – 28oz cans of crushed tomatoes
1 tsp. of crushed garlic
red onion (I use 3/4 of the onion)
¼ cup olive oil
fresh basil
garlic salt
crushed red pepper
grated black pepper
Heat olive oil in a large pan, add the red onion, after about 4 minutes add the garlic, after about 4 minutes add the tomatoes, approximately 5 shakes of the garlic salt and the red pepper flakes, and black pepper to taste (I use it liberally).  Bring all the ingredients to a boil, stirring often.  Once it comes to a boil, turn the heat down to simmer and cover.  Cook for 30 to 45 minutes stirring often.  Once your pasta is ready, turn the heat off of the sauce and add fresh basil (~10 to 15).  

Spoon your fantastic marinara sauce over your pasta, add some grated parmesan cheese, and enjoy.

Happy Monday!  Happy Fresh Start!

P.S.  I forgot – the InPerspire Bingo word of the day is: 5k.

P.P.S.  Jimmy has kept track of everyone’s workout postings so tomorrow I can easily add the stars to your names.  Thanks for waiting for me :).

  1. I say pour that yummy sauce over my extra lean ground turkey!!!! I am not a pasta fan… OR over chicken or anthing else! 🙂

    Great all weight workout! Feeling it already!

  2. Welcome Aubree, that sauce does go good with just aboit everything. We are in Salt Lake City today, the weather is great, a lite wind coming down from the canyon and it is in the mid 70’s. We had a nice walk with some boot camp mixed in, now it is time to get ready to head to the airport and back to St Louis, but first a quick stop at the pup for some good food and weak beer.

  3. Hey All! Well, we are done playing hopscotch and walking in the beautiful, SLC, weather. Our Meatless Monday will be consisting of peanuts (SWA style) and pretzels if we are lucky. Yay for Meatless Mondays. ~karma

  4. My kids are going to leave S.L.C. in a few hours, so sad! We have had a great time just to short.
    But before they go, it’s off to the PUB for some good old fashion beer and salad.

    Karma and Jimmy man did a lot of walking in the park while they were here..Slow going for them, but they made my day.

    Have a safe trip home and we will see you soon. Love Momb

  5. This is a very secret sauce. I can’t believe you actually gave this out!!! Hey everyone, this is a total staple in our house and always gets rave reviews when we cook it for other people, enjoy.

  6. That’s my kind of sauce. I cook one really similar but don’t heat it as long; I’m sure that makes a yummy difference.

    Loving the Bingo and am waiting for 1 of 2 key words. Maybe tomorrow.

    Ran 8 miles tonight – the first time since being sick. Yahoo!
