To serve 5-6
2 pounds of ripe ripe ripe tomatoes chopped/ 4 cans of chopped/crushed tomatoes (or use a mixture)
1 Tbsp of tomato paste (for the concentrated tart, sweet tomato flavor)
3-4 cloves of garlic smashed and minced
1 medium white onion chopped fine
2 Tbsp of basil chopped fine
2 Cups of fresh baby spinach
1 Tsp of dried oregano
Salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
In a deep pot, add a Tbsp of OO and heat for a couple of minutes on medium heat. Sautee garlic and onions till translucent and slight pink. Add the tomatoes, the paste, basil, oregano and the seasonings. Stir well. Add a cup of water and simmer on medium covered for about 20-30 minutes.
If the water evaporates fast, lower the heat and add another half cup of water. Stir well. The sauce should be semi-solid and a little chunky (not bite sized). Add the oregano and the spinach and let the leaves wilt for about 3-4 minutes.
Your sauce is ready to be devoured!
