Hearty Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 55 min.
Hubby said double the tomato paste. I added sugar.
I made this to use in baked ziti and was very pleased with the results. I didn't have red bell pepper so I just increased the amount of green. I also added 1/4 cup of finely chopped carrots. No doubt this will be my go-to spaghetti sauce.
I quadrupled this recipe, making 3 small changes..n 1 major.. substituting sweet italian sausage for gound beef...1 cup chardonnay for water (was out of favorite dry white wine..pinot grigio..), used equal parts yellow, red, n orange bell peppers (don't like green) and used my fresh basil n cuban oregano instead of dried and added 2 tbs of fresh flat leaf parsley.....WAS AWESOME!!!!! if I do say so. Made enough to freeze several batches for future use. Served over cheese stuffed ravioli n made beer bread while it was simmering.
this is the recipe I use when makingsauce for 2 .very good
