This is a great basic tomato sauce that is excellent in many Italian recipes. Depending on what and who you are serving this to you can add hot pepper flakes to taste.
- Heat oil in a large pot and cook onion, garlic and seasonings for 5 minutes.
- Add tomatoes, tomato paste, wine and butter.
- Simmer for 30 minutes till sauce is fairly thick, and once the golden oil floats on top you know it is done.
I like! Will make again!
This was delish! I cut the oil & butter each in half to lighten the recipe, but other than that made as directed. Very easy & it tasted fabulous. I dared DH & DS to figure out the secret ingredient (nutmeg, which they don't like in anything) but neither of them could until I told them. The nutmeg & red wine were in just the right proportions to set this recipe apart from others & we really enjoyed it. I browned some ground beef & stirred that in after it simmered then served it over pasta. Thanks for sharing, Kermit!
