Bruschetta Sauce

Man, if I had a garden I would totally grow tomatoes. I used store bought tomatoes but I can only imagine how yummy this would be with fresh garden tomatoes! We ate this sauce last night with spaghetti, but it would also be delicious on crackers or garlic toast!
If you're looking to boost your pasta nutrition then here you go. I love this pasta because it has 6 grams of fiber and as much calcium as a glass of milk (30%). It tastes just like regular pasta but is much more nutritious!
Bruschetta Sauce
4-5 c. chopped tomatoes
1/4 c. oil
4 cloves garlic, minced or grated
2 t. dried minced onion
1 t. dried basil
1/2 t. dried oregano
salt to taste
Place chopped tomatoes in a bowl and set aside.
In a saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, basil and oregano. Heat and stir until garlic is golden.
Add tomatoes and stir until well combined. Add salt to taste.
Simmer over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes or until saucy. Serve over pasta, crackers or toast.
I served this sauce over angel hair pasta with chicken sausages and parmesan cheese.
This sauce is pretty runny. If you want to make it thicker just add a cornstarch/water mixture after simmering and heat a while longer. Enjoy!
