Joanne--Recipe---Italian sauce

Posted by Josie | 9:35 AM | 3 comments »

In a large pan, brown half a chopped onion and garlic in a small amount of olive oil. (You can cheat and use onion and garlic powder)

Add 1 large can of tomato puree, 2 small cans of tomato paste, and tomato puree can filled 3/4 way with water. Stir in spices such as parsley, oregano, basil and black pepper. A slice of green pepper may be included in the sauce.

That's it! Meat will flavor the sauce, so add your Italian meatballs and/or Italian sausage. Serve with hot pasta--we like rigatoni or ziti best. (Leftover sauce can be used to make homemade pizza the following day.)
