Fresh Tomato-Herb Sauce
A fresh version of traditional spaghetti sauce. It requires no stovetop cooking and is flavored with fresh herbs and feta cheese. Can be used as a topping for toasted bread, too!
2 cups fresh seeded tomatoes*
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Equal® Spoonful**
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup (2-ounces) crumbled feta cheese
- Combine all ingredients, except feta cheese. Let stand at room temperature about 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. (If making ahead, store, covered, in refrigerator until ready to use.)
- Just before serving, stir in feta cheese.
- Toss with hot cooked pasta or use on toasted Italian bread for bruschetta.
Makes 8 servings.
*To seed tomatoes quickly and easily, cut tomato into quarters. Squeeze each piece gently in hand; seeds will come out.
**May substitute 1 1/2 packets Equal sweetener
