tomato-pasta-sauce recipe

plain pasta sauce is SO easy to make yourself and only takes as long
as the noodles take to cook.  Here is how I make mine:

Tomato Pasta Sauce

1 medium can tomato sauce (or crushed tomatoes if you like it chunky)
2 tsp. minced garlic (I buy it already minced, check the label for oil
1 T. each fresh oregano and basil (I buy this in the produce section
water packed in jars)
2 T. tomato paste

Simmer until heated through.  Tomato paste will thicken the sauce.  You
may want to add it 1 T. at a time so you get the desired thickness. 
This is really tasty, super quick, and totally fat free.  If you want
other stuff in it, just steam some veggies in the microwave (or use
leftovers out of the refrigerator) and add them to the sauce.
