No Cook Marinara Sauce (A.K.A. Lazy Marinara)

This is a tasty, quick and efficient recipe I have been making for years. It is a great shortcut when  wanting a homemade meal but not having time to make sauce from scratch. By the time the dough for pizza has risen, the pasta boiled or the first round of zucchini/eggplant fried the sauce is ready. Another tip, while waiting for pasta to boil, pizza to bake or zucchini/eggplant parmesan to cook- make a fresh salad to round off a healthy meal.

1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1Tablespoon dried basil
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1-4 cloves garlic; crushed (modify to your family’s taste- we go heavy as we love garlic)
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (if you are making zucchini or eggplant parmesan omit the oil as the vegetables soaks up so much when frying)

Mix all ingredients together and continue preparing the rest of your meal. I usually mix right in the box; just peal the side tabs up and cut straight across.
