The Greatest Pasta Sauce Of All Time

3 Green peppers
1 Onion
4 Garlic cloves
3 Cans Diced Tomatoes
Italian seasonings
2 tbs Olive Oil

-  Chop green peppers and onions and saute in olive oil over medium high heat until onions are translucent
-  Crush garlic in garlic press and add to pepper-onion mixture
-  Add tomatoes and Italian seasonings to taste
-  Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes
-  Puree in blender/food processor/magic bullet until smooth

-  Don't add the garlic too early or cook for too long.  Garlic becomes bitter if overcooked. 
-  For a stronger flavor wait until five minutes before pureeing to add the garlic
-  This also tastes great with browned ground beef or ground turkey added.
-  You could also add mushrooms or olives (or any other veggie) to the saute.
