Simple Seasoned Tomato Sauce

Simple Seasoned Tomato Sauce created by Baby Kato

Just like the name suggests...a simple sauce to make but a pleasure to eat. This recipe comes from Giada De Laurentis...Everyday Italian. Update Sept. 07--bay leaves appeared in the directions, but not ingredients. Fixed now!!!

ingredients

directions

  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent--about 2 minutes. Add celery and carrot and season with salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, basil and bay leaves and reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for 1 hour or until thick. Remove bay leaves and taste for seasoning. If sauce tastes too acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, to round out the flavour.
  • I like my sauce a little spicier, so I add a few red pepper flakes.

    This is my go-to recipe for marinara sauce. I love it. I add a little brown sugar and also add a little Italian seasoning. Freezes beautifully as well.
