    Re: Nomato Marinara Sauce

    I have been looking at this recipe for months and have been completely skeptical. I love to cook and could just not figure out how these ingredients could come together but they do! I love cooking Italian food and miss tomato sauce more than anything which is why I keep coming back to this recipe. I did change some things. I do agree that it's a little sweet so I think I'll just use less pears or pear juice next time. I used fresh garlic and fresh herbs and added parmesan. I can't do onions so I used chives and I don't eat meat so I made some eggplant meatballs. I also didn't include the mushrooms or green pepper just because I really wanted to see how this sauce stood on it's own. I have no idea how you put these ingredients together but thank you so much for sharing!

    Bladderella if you increase the red pepper and add some kind of cheese(I use cream cheese or feta) you will decrease the sweet flavor. Adding more seasoning will also do that. I never find mine sweet if I follow these steps.

    I made this again on Monday night and although I like it, I think it's a little sweet too. I used about 1/2 of the black pepper called for this time. Next time I think I'll use 1/2 the pears and 1/2 the pear juice and see if that helps make it not so sweet.

    Just made this last night. It's a little sweet but all in all, a great substitute for tomato sauce. I made some pizza dough, too. Can't wait for a "real pizza" tonight!

    Instead of red peppers I use butternut squash. It works great and for no carbs (or very little carbs) I use shirataki noodles.

    You can just boil the squash, put it in the blender - add Italian spices and garlic, salt to taste and cook it in a pot over medium heat. Add the rinsed shirataki noodles and viola!

    prisd I know it's crazy to think that those ingredients would taste so good together and taste like marinara. I made it last week and I added a heaping tablespoon of herb and garlic cream cheese and it was amazing. I missed spaghetti so much and the first time I made this I almost cried. I'm so glad you all loved it so much.

    Carole, congrats on recipe of the month! I made it for my family last night served with quinoa spaghetti and they all loved it. It is crazy good! I'm going to send it to my IC friends. I made it pretty much exactly as you said except that I used extra chopped garlic cloves in place of the garlic powder, and I used prune juice instead of pear juice because I already had some on had. I packed some leftovers in my husband's lunch along with more spaghetti noodles, an extra sausage, and some spinach and he said it was the best lunch I ever packed him, ha ha. Thank you so much!!

    From what I understand, you can't taste the beets in the sauce once it's made.

    I added a big spoon full of herbed cream cheese and shredded parmesan(if can tolerate) to this sauce and it was amazing! It tasted way better than any jarred or restaurant sauce.
