This was a great sauce! I used 1-1/4 of meatloaf mix meat, and 1-1/2 cans of crushed tomatoes with basil (no other tomato sauce on hand). I had to let some liquid boil away after the first 45 minutes, I think another half hour while I got the rest of dinner ready did the trick. We had this with angel hair pasta. It was delishious! Thanks for a great recipe - this is my one and only sauce for now on!
This is SO delicious! Of course I had to use onion powder instead of onion (1 teaspoon) so added a pinch of brown sugar (about 1/2 teaspoon) because onion powder does not have the sweetness of sweet onions. Used all 5 cloves of garlic and added about a teaspoon of the basil. Served it over Dreamfieldâ€™s Penne pasta with Parmesan cheese and there was not a drop left!
