    Krystal-Belle's Note:

    This sauce is so good! A definite break from the ordinary. I like to experiment in the kitchen and this is one experiment that definitely went right! Plus, it's a very versatil kind of base-sauce, so you can add different things to your liking. My next time making this, I'm definitely going to try adding in mushrooms. (prep time does not include bacon/chicken drippings)

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 -3 teaspoons bacon drippings (or chicken drippings from baked chicken if you've got them)
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic (fresh or powder)
    • 1/4 onion, sliced thin
    • 3 -4 manzanilla olives, chopped fine (optional)
    • 1/4 cup mushroom, chopped (optional)
    • 3/4 cup tomato sauce (pasta sauce)
    • 1 cup extra-sharp cheddar cheese (best to use brick cheese and slice it thin for quick and even cooking)


    1. 1
      Heat a pot over medium heat. Once pot is hot, pour in bacon drippings (can add bacon too, crumbled).
    2. 2
      Add in onions and cook until they start to become translucent, then add garlic and olives, mushrooms, or whatever other vegetables you decide to add to the sauce.
    3. 3
      Once vegetables are soft, add in tomato sauce. Cook until heated through (about 3 minutes), then add cheese and stir until melted.
    4. 4
      Serve this over pasta or stir the pasta directly into the pot. Since this is a thick sauce, the noodles should easily hold on to the sauce.
