Total Calories: 90
Yield: 4 cups


3 tablespoons minced shallots
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 (28-ounce) can peeled whole tomato
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt


1. Mince the shallots.
2. Heat the olive oil in a medium pot over medium-low heat. Add the shallots and saute about 3 minutes, or until they begin to soften.
3. Mince the parsley.
4. Add the tomatoes (and juice) to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. For a chunky sauce, crush the tomatoes with your hand or coarsely chop them with a knife.
5. Transfer the tomatoes to the pot along with the parsley, garlic, oregano, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 20 to 30 minutes.
