I really like this sauce. It’s chunky though so if large tomato chunks aren’t your cup of tea just use crushed tomatoes. I use this on pizza and pasta and whatever else floats my boat.
28oz crushed tomatoes
28oz diced tomatoes (partially drained depending on how liquidy you want the sauce)
1 medium onion, diced
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
mushrooms, sliced (optional)
bell pepper, diced (optional)
Olive oil to saute the veggies, I use less than 1 T
1 T sugar
1 T italian seasonings
red pepper flakes (optional)
smidge of salt
pinch of black pepper
sometimes I put some red wine in the sauce too
Sauté the onions and bell pepper (if using) over medium until they are soft. Add garlic and mushrooms and continue cooking for about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, reduced heat, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or so.
