Quick Healthy Marinara Sauce and Garlic Cheesy Bread

Marinara Sauce Ingredients:

24 oz. can organic diced tomatoes
1/2 red onion chopped
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 small bunch of fresh basil chopped
1/4-1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper
Sugar (1-2 Tablespoons)


Sautee onion, garlic, and basil in olive oil for a minute or two. Add tomatoes, salt & pepper, sugar and simmer with a lid on the sauce for about 10 minutes. Stir freshly grated parmesan cheese into the sauce right before serving. Serve over your favorite pasta (al dente).

Cheesy Garlic Bread Ingredients:

1 store-bought italian loaf of bread (or whatever crusty bread you prefer)
1 stick of salted butter (melted)
Small bunch of scallions chopped
1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 cup freshly shredded monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup freshly shredded extra sharp white cheddar
small bunch of freshly chopped parsley
Salt & Pepper 
2 Tablespoons minced garlic


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut your entire loaf of bread in a criss-cross or X pattern. Do not cut the entire way through your loaf or your ingredients will soak out. Mix melted butter, oil, chopped scallions, mustard, chopped parsley, chopped garlic, and salt & pepper (to taste) together in a bowl. Pour butter mixture evenly throughout the loaf. Next, stuff the loaf of bread with your cheese. Wrap entire loaf of bread in tin foil and bake for 20 minutes. Unwrap, bake for another 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Serve along with your pasta and enjoy!
