365-238 For Lisa....
My sweet friend Lisa gave me a recipe for home made spaghetti sauce years ago. I made it once or twice over the years and went back to the "easy" Ragu jars. Honestly, I don't know why? It is so easy to make this sauce. I got out the recipe and made fresh sauce this week. The family loved it and I will never go back to Ragu. It is so yummy and so easy!
Thanks Lisa... Miss you so much!!!!
Easy Sauce Recipe
2 cans of whole peeled tomatoes
2 small cans of tomatoes sauce
2 cloves of garlic
t. sweet basil
In a pan, take the olive oil, garlic and onions and saute until golden. Take the tomatoes and put it in a blender and pulse a couple times. Add tomatoes and sauce and add to pan with onions. Add fresh parsley, bay leaf, sweet basil, oregano and sugar. Simmer 2-3 hours and voila YUM!!!
You can make meat balls, Italian sausage, or add or brown ground (chop) meat to the sauce.
