The red bell peppers add to the sweetness and depths of flavor. Thanks Deanna for the tip!
Chunky Roasted Red Bell Pepper Tomato Sauce
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
2 roasted red bell peppers (I buy a HUGE jar at Costco. Worth its weight in gold!)
3-4 cloves garlic
1 can petite cut diced tomatoes (can get the garlic ones or other similar flavor, if they don't have them plain) Drained
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
1 tbsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp red pepper flake
1tbsp balsamic vinegar
With a stick blender (or put in a regular blender), blend the crushed tomatoes, red bell pepper, and garlic. Add to a pot with the diced tomatoes and spices. Cover and cook on medium until bubbling and then lower heat and let simmer.
