Garden Fresh Marinara Sauce (adapted from http://www.5dollardinners.com/)

Serves: 4-6
Points: 3

1 onion
1 green pepper
5-6 medium ripe tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
10 basil leaves
4 parsley sprigs
1-2 T. EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

Blend all ingredients in blender until chunky or pureed. I found that running the blender for about 15 seconds and then a few pulses did the trick. Pour sauce from the blender into a saucepan or large skillet. Turn on medium heat and bring to bubbling. Toss in chopped carrots or zuchinni if you'd like. Cover and reduce heat to low. Let simmer 30 minutes - 2 hours, depending on how thick you prefer your sauce. Serve with favorite pasta noodles, grated parmesan or shredded mozzarella cheese and side dish! (Served with 1 c. cooked white pasta, this dish is six points. Served with 1 1/2 c. whole grain pasta, it is 5 points. Add 1/2 lb. extra lean ground beef to sauce and add 3 points to running total.)
