Simple Red Pasta Sauce

I love that we occasionally get dried herbs in our CSA boxes.  I currently have them hanging in my kitchen from laundry line using clothespins.  It works really well, and gives the space a nice rustic kitchen witch look.  🙂


  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (I can’t wait for fresh tomatoes!)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional 1/3 lb ground turkey

What I Did:

  • Put everything but the turkey into a food processor and obliterate it!  I love doing this… it usually brings out an evil scientist cackle from me.
  • Brown the turkey in a large pan.
  • Add the sauce.
  • Simmer on low for at least one hour, stirring occasionally.  If it looks like it’s getting dry, add some more olive oil.
  • Enjoy!
