This spaghetti sauce recipe comes from "Extending the Table", a collection of recipes from around the world. The notes say that it comes from the Sicilian American community. Now I have to tell you, this is a GREAT recipe. My boys (husband and roommate) who will eat anything, but only give 5 stars to the recipes that are in danger of being inhaled, give this one 5 stars. I had to beat my husband to make him stop licking the crockpot! :) It tastes a little sweet, mostly savory, and very herby. Don't use more of the herbs than is listed, or they will overwhelm the sauce, though you can certainly use less.

Directions

  1. Saute onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Add meatballs if you wish at this point.
  3. Bring sauce to a boil. Simmer 2-3 hours to mix the flavors.
  4. NOTE: This can also be made by placing everything in your slow cooker and simmering all day. This is how I made it. I would recommend sauteing the onions and garlic first. A triple batch filled my BIG (6 qt, I think) crockpot.
  5. TO FREEZE: Let sauce cool to room temperature, then pour into a labeled freezer bag. Seal, trying to get rid of as much air as possible in the process, and freeze flat. You can freeze with meatballs in or without.
  6. TO REHEAT: Thaw overnight in the fridge, or in the microwave, or in a bowl of warm water (still sealed in the bag), or just dump in a crockpot or pot on the stove frozen and warm gently.
