I love sun-dried tomatoes.  Once I had a large glass jar of them packed in olive oil (which is how you should buy them if at all possible) that I needed to use up.  It was summer and I had fresh tomatoes, too.  I created this sauce and tossed it with some angel hair pasta.  It’s a light, flavorful and delicious sauce!



1 clove garlic, minced

¼ cup sweet onion, chopped

5 – 6 sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, chopped

1 medium ripe tomato, chopped

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. olive oil

4 oz. pasta, cooked according to package directions*



Heat olive oil in pan.  Add onion and garlic, sauté until soft.  Add tomatoes and spices.  Cook until some of the liquid is gone and flavor is blended all through tomatoes.  Serve immediately over hot pasta.  Serves  1.

Hint: Top with fresh-grated parmesan for another layer of flavor. (If you can!)

*Serve with spaghetti squash to make this a GAPS-friendly recipe!
