I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Simple Basic Tomato Sauce

Simple Basic Tomato Sauce

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup diced

1 green pepper, diced
2 to 3 cloves
garlic, chopped or minced
1 (28-ounce) can crushed or diced tomatoes
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

2 tsp oregano

1 tsp basil

2 cloves minced garlic

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and pepper; saute until translucent. Add the garlic and cook and stir another 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning. Season with salt. Cook until completely heated, another 2 to 3 minutes.

For a smooth sauce, place mixture in your blender or food processor and process until texture that you want.

Makes approximately 3 1/ 2 cups (enough for 4 to 6 servings).
