Chunky Marinara Sauce

I’ve been on this gluten-free adventure lately and came across Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice Spaghetti Pasta. I have tried other gluten-free pastas before, but this one is now my top favorite. First of all, it tastes amazing (you would never think this is rice!) and second, the ingredients are simple: Brown rice and water. That’s it! Over the weekend I cooked up a super quick and simple chunky tomato sauce to go with it. I also added in some Brussels sprouts and Lima beans. This would also go well with some broccoli or bell peppers, or any of your favorite veggies.

1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 Tbs Italian herbs
1 Tbs dried basil
2 Tbs red wine vinegar
1 Tbs olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Put the olive oil in a pan and place on low-medium heat. Saute the onions for about 5 minutes until translucent. Add the garlic and tomatoes (with juice), herbs, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes. If you are adding other vegetables or beans, I would recommend cooking them separately first, then adding them in when you add in your tomatoes.
