Marinara Sauce

Marinara Sauce
4 servings

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups chopped vegetables of choice (onions, bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini squash, carrots, mushrooms)
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram
pinch of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce

Saute vegetables in oil until tender. Add seasonings, tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes. Serve over pasta and enjoy.

Our sauce was extra special tonight with garden fresh peppers from Giggles's Mom. :-)

Do you have a pedometer?

They're great! This is a very simple one that I got at Wal-Mart for about $6. It keeps track of time, steps, mileage and calories burned. I have found it to only be accurate when I am actually out on a walk. If I clip it on when I am just walking around the house, it will say I walk 3 miles just unloading the dishwasher - haha! But when I am out walking for exercise, it is very accurate. And a great motivator!
