Another tasty-looking tomato sauce recipe from Recipe Rehab

Recipe Rehab is a TV show I have recommended here. It takes grossly unhealthy recipes from American families and asks tow chefs to reimagine them in healthier ways.

It doesn’t always get enough salt out, in my opinion, but at least it tries. And in the process hopefully it gets viewers to think about eating healthier foods. I’ve blogged about a roasted cherry tomato sauce (we call it gravy) recipe I tried from the show. Recently, I saw another tomato sauce recipe there I plan to try as well.

The ingredient list includes:

2 roasted red bell peppers (or 1 jar roasted red bell peppers)
2 whole tomatoes
¼ red onion
1 tablespoon fennel seed
6 fresh basil leaves
1 cup baby kale
1 clove garlic
Splash of balsamic vinegar

And the instructions for making it couldn’t be simpler:

“Add all of the ingredients for the sauce into a bowl. Use a hand blender to purée the sauce.”

You then simply simmer the sauce to heat it. The recipe also calls for adding in some pasta water. That sounds a little gross to me, I don’t like watery sauce (gravy). I also might be tempted to leave out the kale. I like the idea of the red pepper, I’d go with fresh rather than jarred though, the jarred one likely has salt added.
