Tomato-Basil Sauce

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Lorrie in Montreal

This is the base tomato sauce for my Italian Meatballs. No matter what you add to it, more veggies, ground beef, chicken pieces, Italian sausage etc., you have a flavourful starting place.

I just love to have this sort of thing in the freezer - this was so easy to do , great taste and great time saver down the track. Made for Holiday Tag.

  1. Sauté fresh veggies till softened then add remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring it all to a boil,then add meatballs or ground beef, Italian sausage, chicken pieces, spare ribs and simmer for a couple of hours.
  3. (Don't be shy to use fresh herbs in place of dried, an added handful fresh chopped parsley would go nicely too).
