Fixate Healthy Homemade Tomato Sauce

Fixate Healthy Homemade Tomato Sauce

Feb 9, 2017

I used to buy spaghetti sauce in a jar.  Never even thought about making my own.  Then I tried this recipe from the Fixate cookbook and now we use it all the time.  First, my kids and husband like it and they are SUPER picky eaters.  Second, it makes a ton and can be used in a lot of recipes.  You can use it to make chili, chicken or eggplant parmesan, or homemade pizza.  And last, it meets my criteria of being fairly easy to make which is a must with my lack of culinary skills.

Johanna’s Notes:

I usually substitute red wine vinaigrette for the red wine since that’s what I have on hand.

I don’t always have a cheese rind but found its not crucial.

This makes a lot of sauce but is great in other recipes too found in the Fixate cookbook!  Message me if you want more info on getting the cookbook for yourself.
