Amazing Pasta Sauce
For best results allow sauce to simmer for one to two hours. Also the olive oil, bay leaves and brown sugar are a must! I highly recommend doubling the recipe and freezing half for a later use. This makes a thicker sauce that really sticks to the pasta noodles.
1/4 cup butter
3 TBSP olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
2 TBSP brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup white wine (optional - but oh so good)
freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1. Saute onion and garlic in the butter and olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
2. Add everything else and simmer for 1 to 2 hours.
3. Remove bay leaves before serving
4. Serve over pasta
5. Sprinkle lightly with Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Leftovers can be frozen and used in future meals.
As you can see I served my pasta with meatballs.
