Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

The other night I had a big craving for a huge plate of pasta with Italian herbs and chunky tomato sauce. I didn't have any of the ready made sauce on me so I improvised. I don't mess with my pasta craving, I was going to eat. I took what I had at home and made a chunky, creamy, and savory sun dried tomato sauce.

1/2 Cup sun dried tomatoes (Julienne cut)
1/3 - 1/2 Cup cream or milk
1/3 Cup roasted red pepper and tomato soup
1 Tsp garlic powder
1 Tsp onion powder
Dash of red pepper spice
Dash of salt and pepper

  1. Stir fry the sun dried tomatoes in a frying pan with olive oil spray for 5 minutes until they until they're lightly blackened.
  2. In a blender, food processor, or magic bullet like appliance, add the rest of the ingredients and the tomatoes. 
  3. Pulse 4-5 times until the mixture is chunky but not completely smooth. 
  4. Then pour the sauce into a sauce pan and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Pour over your favorite pasta and enjoy!
*If you want a smoother sauce, warm up the tomatoes to a hotter temperature and pulse the mixture a few times more, I just prefer the sauce chunkier*
