"I'm eight months pregnant right now, and craving pasta like crazy! But traditional tomato sauce gives me wicked heartburn, so I developed this recipe with kefir. All the yumminess of tomato sauce without the burn! Serve over the pasta of your choice."
Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, oregano, and thyme. Simmer until tomatoes are soft, about 10 minutes. Add baking soda and stir. Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in kefir.
