Basil & Feta Avocado Dip
A cool summer snack that takes no more than five minutes to prepare!
This recipe is perfect for days when you want to make something at home without spending too much time standing over the stove. This is also a great recipe that you can put together in the morning or mid-day and let simmer in an Instant Pot or slow cooker.
If you haven't been saving your leftover red wine for cooking, it's time you start now – this is an excellent recipe for putting it to good use. Reducing the wine in a separate pan is a small step that really brings out the flavors of this easy marinara sauce. But, if you're in a hurry, you can skip that step and simply add the wine to your onion and garlic mixture and reduce there.
We're serving this homemade marinara with pasta, lemon-basil chicken, sautéed mushrooms and zucchini, parmesan cheese, and toasted rustic bread from KC's Kitchen on Saturday evenings through the end of Spring.
If you don't end up eating all of your marinara sauce, try using it on a homemade pizza. You can also freeze the leftover and add it to your next batch, but just make sure you eat all of it. I don't recommend freezing your second batch that has used repurposed marinara.
