Fresh Tomato Sauce

For quick, easy, and fresh tomato sauce, add the following ingredients to a food processor:

Can of diced tomatoes
1 freshly squeezed lemon
A couple fresh basil leaves
1 Tbsp chopped green onion
1 Tbsp garlic
1Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper

Use the grate or chop setting on your food processor to lightly blend, just to break up the tomatoes, green onion and basil. You want the sauce a little chunky. It will be light in taste but powerful in the beautiful aroma of basil. Here, I added it to whole wheat thin spaghetti with black olives, mushrooms, and sliced chicken breast. Pour a little over the pasta, add some parmesean cheese, and serve. The perfect light sauce for summer!
