DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a pot over medium heat. Once pot is hot, pour in bacon drippings (can add bacon too, crumbled).
  • Add in onions and cook until they start to become translucent, then add garlic and olives, mushrooms, or whatever other vegetables you decide to add to the sauce.
  • Once vegetables are soft, add in tomato sauce. Cook until heated through (about 3 minutes), then add cheese and stir until melted.
  • Serve this over pasta or stir the pasta directly into the pot. Since this is a thick sauce, the noodles should easily hold on to the sauce.
