This recipe is posted in memory of my close friend, Sue Curry, who passed away in 1996. Being the good ol'italian that I am I needed a good sauce recipe and Sue gave me this one. I believe she said she got it from the back of a macaroni box. Enjoy!
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
- 2 1⁄2 cups water
- 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- salt & pepper
- Brown the onion and garlic in the olive oil.
- Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 hour or until thick enough for you!
To Robin Williams: I fixed this spaghetti sauce recipe for supper this evening. I mean to tell you we enjoyed every last bite! It's so thick and rich and ready in about an hour. I took the liberty of adding Italian breakfast links to it as I just got them from our favorite Italian meat market. Sure made a tasty meal. Your posting is a beautiful tribute to your friend. I'm sure she's proud as punch. Many thanks to you. Laudee C. Colorado
We have tried numerous recipes and every canned sause on the market. This recipe is by far the best tasting to us. We do revise it slightly by using Italian Seasoning in lieu of the spices and 1.5 Tblspns of brown sugar in lieu of white. Thanks for posting it.
