DIRECTIONS

  • With your hands, crush the cold dried tomato slices. In a bowl, combine the crushed tomatoes with the next 6 ingredients. Pour in 3 cups of the water and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes to rehydrate.
  • In a skillet, brown the beef and drain off any excess fat. Add the salt, basil, oregano, and the fennel, and stir in the rehydrated tomato mixture, including the liquid. Simmer the sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, for at least 30 minutes, adding more water, if necessary, if the sauce becomes too thick.
  • When the sauce has just about finished cooking, combine the tomato powder in the remaining 1/2 cup water, add the sugar and pepper and stir to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Add the rehydrated tomato powder to the meat sauce and simmer the sauce slowly for at least 10 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the olives. Serve over hot pasta, with grated Parmesan cheese.
