*Johnna’s tip: We love when friends share their recipes. This recipe comes from a JKGF favorite who cooks healthy, good foods all the time and this is no exception. She created this basic sauce on NYE and our mouths were watering as she went thru the list of ingredients…a big, fat Yum. to fresh thyme, garlic and tomatoes in one steaming, hot dish. We know. It’s basic. Basic is good especially when its been a long day and you need to get off those tired soles as quickly as possible. Try this recipe alongside your favorite pasta or even tie it in your fave lasagna recipe. Enjoy!
