My friend Rita gave us "Les Gals" this recipe and it has become by far one of our favorites. Put the water on to boil...make the sauce.... cook the pasta, and PRESTO... a Vegetarian Pasta is ready to serve.
WARNING: IT IS ADDICTIVE... and you can make it easy, or fancy....

It will become your husband's 'I ate so much meat this week" supper he will love.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp

3 to 4
garlic cloves, chopped and mashed

knorr vegetable or chicken cube

SERVE AS A 'PRIMA DISH' FOLLOWING THE SALAD

I USE PENNE OR ROTINI PASTA; FOR INDIVIDUAL SERVINGS. OR LAYERED ON A SERVING DISH

TOP WITH SAUCE;

TOP WITH DRAINED CANNED NAVY BEANS;

TOP WITH BLACK OLIVES;

TOP WITH PIECES OF GREEK FETA CHEESE.

OPTIONAL: FRESH BASIL

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan, heat the oil.butter
Gently fry the garlic (do not burn)
ADD the Basil Pesto Sauce
If you don't like Basil, just add the spices of your choice.
2
Add the Knorr Cube, pepper,
GOOD ITALIAN TOMATOES ARE PREFERRED where the juice is thick like Hunts Tomato Sauce.
add ONLY THE TOMATOES from the can to the saucepan.
I cut the tomatoes with scissors and then mash them with a fork
3
Continue on medium heat until it thickens a bit.
Depending on the quality of tomatoes (the juice may be very thin) if it thickens too quickly add the juice and simmer it down.
DO NOT USE Pureed Tomatoes

AT THE START: PUT THE WATER ON TO BOIL........

This recipe is delicious and very tasty.
This recipe will serve 3 - 4 persons.... depending on how much sauce you like on your spaghetti.
I have made this sauce for 20 persons and more.
IF 1 recipe serves 4 ....
FOR 20 persons
Increase all ingredients by multiplying by 5 AND preferably by 6 to be sure.
