I have not tried this recipe. I got it from Two Minutes For Busy Families newsletter. It's a Martha Stewart Living recipe.

You have just got to try this recipe. I came home later, today, than planned. In trying to find something to fix quickly, I came across this recipe. We both loved it. The only variation I made was that I had some frozen meatballs I keep on hand, and when dropped into the sauce during the simmering period, they came out wonderful. You couldn't ask for a more forgiving, simple recipe using every day on hand items. Thank You so much for posting it. jim

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a wide, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they begin to brown. Add garlic. Cook another minute.
  3. While onions are cooking, coarsely chop the sliced mushrooms - no need to be exacting about this, just cut them up a little more. Add mushrooms to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until they have browned somewhat.
  4. If desired, add a little wine to the pan, and boil vigorously until it has disappeared.
  5. Add salt, pepper, seasoning and tomatoes. Allow the mixture to simmer on low heat about 10 minutes or until it has thickened.
  6. Serve over long noodles such as vermicelli or spaghetti, or use any place red sauce is used (in lasagna, to cook chicken or beef,) etc.
  7. Serve with salad and bread.
