Extremely Easy 3 Ingredient Tomato Sauce

This is definitely one of the easiest tomato sauce recipes you will ever come across, and has become my go to tomato sauce recipe!  I love that it takes about  2 minutes to prep the ingredients and a short time to cook!  The recipe is adapter from here.

1 container of Pomi strained tomatoes (they’re GMO free)
1 organic onion cut in half
5 tbsp organic butter
(pinch of salt if needed)

Combine all ingredients in a pot, I used a dutch oven, and simmer for 45 minutes. Add a pinch of salt if needed and serve!  It’s that easy!

The end result is an amazing sauce with sweet and melty onions.  The original recipe says to take out the onions after cooking, however I love to eat them either with my pasta or a piece of bread.  Enjoy!

Baked Organic Pineapple Meatballs

One of my husbands favorite foods is pineapple.  I’ve had pineapple with chicken and burgers before, but never with meatballs.  I came across this recipe and I figured I’d give it a try.  It was a huge hit with the hubby!  I will definitely be making it again!  I served it over some organic Basmati rice.  The rice was so delicious after soaking up the juices! I actually cut the recipe below in half since it was just the two of us eating this. Baked Organic Pineapple Meatballs Baked Organic Pineapple Meatballs

Baked Organic Pineapple Meatballs
 
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs organic ground beef
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • ½ cup organic breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons organic Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Sauce
  • 1 cup packed organic brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons organic cornstarch
  • 1¾ cups reserved organic pineapple juice, plus water if necessary to measure (it will be)
  • ¼ cup organic white vinegar
  • 1½ tablespoons organic soy sauce
  • 1½ teaspoons organic Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (14 ounce) can organic pineapple tidbits (I used slices), juice drained and reserved (see above)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. To make the meatballs combine the ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder in a bowl and mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Bake in the oven until slightly browned, but do not worry about cooking them all the way through as they will go back in the oven.
  3. To make sauce, combine the brown sugar and cornstarch in a large saucepan, then whisk in the 1-3/4 cup pineapple juice/water combination until mixture is smooth. Add vinegar, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce; stir.
  4. Simmer, uncovered, on medium-low heat for about 8 minutes, or until thickened.
  5. Pour sauce over meatballs and add pineapple tidbits; stir gently to combine until meatballs are coated with sauce.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, until the sauce slightly thickens and the meatballs are thoroughly cooked.
