Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce

Ask anyone I know and they will tell you that my favorite dinner to make is pasta. In fact, our friends and family have come to expect it when they come for dinner. I’m always experimenting with new sauces to keep this favorite exciting. This tomato basil pasta sauce recipe has a “from scratch” feel, but uses a few shortcuts to keep it quick!
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 8 oz jar sun dried tomatoes, drained
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 c dry white wine
fresh basil
Over medium heat, combine olive oil, garlic & sun dried tomatoes. Stir and allow to cook for 5 minutes.  Pour wine in and stir well. Add tomato sauce and red pepper and reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes. Pepper to taste.
Fresh basil is a great way to add flavor, fragrance and color to red sauces. Top and serve!
Serves 4
