Marinara Sauce

After Mirchi ka Saalan, Kris was a lil disappointed cos he is dead against Mirchi's in gravy I just wanted to make him happy and one mantra I recollected was "To reach a man's heart is through his stomach"... He is a Pasta person, so I decided to make a simple Marinara Sause, throw in some shrimps and serve over pasta...



Ingredients:

Onion - 1 medium finely chopped
Garlic - 4-5 cloves minced
Cherry Tomatoes - 1 small basket
Carrot - 1 large shredded
Diced Tomato - 1 can
Italian Seasoning - 1/2 tbsps
EVOO - 2 tbsps
Salt to taste
Sugar 1/4 tsp
Pepper to taste
Shrimp - 20-25 count

Rotini Pasta
Water - 2-3 qts
Salt to taste
EVOO - 2 tbsps



Method:

Cook the Pasta according to the package direction. Drain the Water and mix the pasta with 2 tbsps EVOO.

In a heavy bottom pot heat EVOO, add finely chopped Onion, minced Garlic cook for 3-4 mins. Then add the shredded Carrot and cook until smell disappears. Add the chopped Cherry Tomatoes and canned Tomatoes and until soft for about 15-20 mins. Throw in the Italian Seasoning, Salt, Pepper and Sugar and cook for another 5-10 mins.

Wash, Shrimps and drop in the sauce and cook until they are pink. Serve over pasta.

Well said Ramya! Seems no other easy way to enter a man's heart. When I started cooking after marriage he used to chant "My mom makes this..makes that.." often and hence I had a looong list to cover!!
The marinara sauce is looking great. I was in search of a recipe. I had enough with store bought sauce as it wouldnt last long and had to throw after few days. Now I need to rely on store bought one no longer :)
