This is the sauce to serve over angel hair pasta. If you're using field tomatoes or very ripe tomatoes, cut back on the water/broth.

Recipe Ingredients for Marg's Garden Pasta Sauce

1 garlic clove
1 onion
6 mushrooms
2 tomatoes
4 oz spinach
1/2 cup feta cheese, light, crumbled
1 tbs dried tarragon
1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup white wine
1 tsp cornstarch

Recipe Directions for Marg's Garden Pasta Sauce

  1. Wipe a large skillet with olive oil. Add minced garlic and slivered onions and sliced mushrooms and cook on low for a few minutes just to release the flavor of the garlic.

  2. Add vegetable broth (or you can use 1 cup water and 2 chicken-flavored vegetable bouillon cubes) and tarragon and bring to boil; boil a couple minutes.

  3. Add wine and diced tomatoes. Cook a couple minutes longer. Put the spinach on top and cover the pan and steam the spinach for a minute, until spinach is limp.

  4. Mix cornstarch with about 1/4 cup water and stir into skillet. Cook until a bit thicker (it's okay if it's a bit runny).

  5. Spoon over cooked pasta and top with crumbled feta.
