Ingredients

  • 1

    can (28 oz.) kitchen ready, crushed tomatoes

  • 1

    can (6 oz.) tomato paste

  • olive oil

  • 1 to 2

    cloves garlic

  • 1 to 2

    cups water

  • 2

    tsp. salt

  • 1/2

    tsp. pepper

  • 1

    tsp. sugar

  • 1/2 to 1

    tsp. basil

  • a pinch of baking soda

  • Optional: Simmer sauce with 1 lb. browned ground beef, 1 lb. pork spareribs, 1 lb. beef roast, meatballs, or 1 lb. chicken pieces.

Directions

1. Saute garlic in a little olive oil. Be careful not to burn it. 2. Add tomatoes, paste, salt, pepper, basil, water, sugar, and meat if desired. Add baking soda after it comes to a boil to cut acid of the tomatoes. 3. Simmer 2 to 3 hours, covered. Additional water may be added later to thin sauce as desired. Recipe may be easily doubled or tripled in a large pot. Freeze in quart containers for later use.
