My son does not like mushrooms but with the li'l chopper I was able to sneak them in...and he said Mom, this sauce is awesome!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For a chunkier sauce I suggest not using the blender but as I have discriminating tastes in my family I used a blender for the diced tomatoes and italian diced tomatoes.
  2. Combine blended tomatoes, tomato paste 2 tbsp of the minced garlic, fresh basil, italian seasoning and sugar in a large pot - mix together and begin to simmer on low
  3. Take the other 2 tbsp of garlic, garlic juice, oil, mushroom, green & red pepper, onion and sautee lightly before adding them to the sauce. (Again because of discriminating tastes I used a chopper to chop these into small bits prior to sautee). Combine and let simmer for 1-2 hours then serve over spaghetti I have also used this sauce for my lasagne minus the peppers.
  4. I always taste things going in and if I need more or less of an ingredient I play with it as I let it simmer on the stove for 1 to 2 hours before serving. I also freeze any leftover sauce for next time being that there is only three of us.
