Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce

 Well, I guess it's time for another recipe post because I don't want to lose this recipe.  I found it on and changed it only slightly.  We have lots of tomatoes right now so I was looking for a spaghetti sauce to make with them that only used fresh tomatoes--no canned sauce or paste.  We think this is the best pasta sauce we've ever tasted!  I have made it twice and each time I have tripled the recipe and frozen most of the sauce in 3 C. portions.  (Since I don't drink wine, I looked up what kind of red wine to buy for cooking.  The article I found suggested merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, or mixed red.  It suggested buying the cheapest because the alcohol evaporated the instant it is added to the sauce, so I bought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon for $3.95 which worked great!)

Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce

2 T. olive oil

1/2 onion, chopped

8 large tomatoes, peeled with seeds and juice removed

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 bay leaf

1/2 c. red wine

1 T. honey

2 t. dried basil

1 t. oregano

1 t. dried marjoram

1 t. salt

1/2 t. ground black pepper

1/4 t. fennel seed

1/4 t. crushed red pepper

2 t. balsamic vinegar

Heat oil in pot over medium heat.  Add onion and cook and stir til softened, about 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, pulse the tomatoes a few times in a food processor to a thick consistency.  When onion is tender, add tomatoes, garlic and bay leaf.  Bring to boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer about 30 minutes.

Stir in red wine, honey, basil, oregano, marjoram, salt, black pepper, fennel seed, and crushed red pepper; Simmer at least 30 minutes, but I like to simmer 2-3 hours so some of the moisture has evaporated.

Add balsamic vinegar; stir well.  Discard bay leaf.

Part 24 of The Fall of The Cabal

Have you watched The Fall Of The Cabal with Janet Ossebaard?  If not, you really need to!  I highly recommend it.  Here is a link where you can find all 24 episodes.  The research is phenomenal!  It tells the story of the evil that has plagued our planet for so long and tells the story of how things seemingly unrelated are all part of the plan to destroy us.  This most recent episode is not only informative and revelatory but gives us a plan of action to take.  I especially found the info on what to do if a loved one must be hospitlized helpful.  I plan to write down the steps and questions to ask so that I will have them available to share with others who may need them.

Here is a link to part 24

Addendum later this afternoon: After posting the above I decided to go back to part 1 and watch some of the videos again.  So good!  I found this compilation of the first 10 videos which I can't recommend any more highly!  If you are trying to "wake up" but can't seem to get all the pieces to fit, this is extremely helpful.

Here is the link I watched this afternoon.
