This is a truly wonderful tomato sauce. Simple and very Italian :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Get a pot that will be large enough to hold ingredients. Put pot on stove on medium high heat. Add oil to pot and allow to heat up.
  2. Sauté garlic and onions for approximately 5 minutes, enough for onions to become soft.
  3. Put puree and paste into pot. Take puree cans and fill with water and pour water into pot. Stir well.
  4. Add parmesan, parsley, basil, salt and pepper and stir ingredients inches.
  5. Wait for pot to come to a boil, cover and lower to medium/medium low so that sauce is gently boiling.
  6. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes for approximately 3 hours. Taste sauce to see if cooked. Will be complete when it doesn't have a sour taste to it.
  7. For thicker sauce, boil at a higher rate and stir frequently.

This got rave reviews at our house. I served it with chicken parmesan by same person and fettucine noodles. I made extra to freeze for next time. Oh yeah, I did this in my crockpot and let simmer in there for about 4 hours.
