Tomato Sauce I
Recipe type: Sauces
Serves: 4
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium onion; chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic; minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 28 ounce can Progresso crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 28 ounce can Progresso Italian style tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup freshly chopped basil
  • 1 bay leaf
  1. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in medium saucepan till translucent. Put Italian style tomatoes in blender; puree, and pour into saucepan. Add can of crushed tomatoes. Add Italian seasoning, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and sugar. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Add fresh parsley and chopped basil and simmer another 15 minutes. If you would like to add browned ground beef, meatballs, or sausage... this would be the perfect sauce to do so. If you prefer a thicker sauce, add a Tbl or two of tomato paste. I personally just don't think it needs it.
