Love this sauce!!! and 10 yr old son loves to make it by himself. We sometimes add finely chopped zucchini or carrots (any veggie works) to it for some additional nutrition, as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Add onion to pan; cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add sugar and next 7 ingredients (through fennel seeds); cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Stir in vinegar; cook 30 seconds.
  5. Add broth and tomatoes; bring to a simmer.
  6. Cook over low heat for 55 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. The longer is simmers on low the richer the taste will be.
  7. Can cook sauce to room temperature and store in containers in freezer for future use.
