Recipe ingredients:

  • 3 -4 tablespoons olive oil or 3 -4 tablespoons vegetable oil or 3 -4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic (or use 1 teaspoon garlic powder or to taste)
  • 3 -4 teaspoons dried italian seasoning (or to taste, i use 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 -4 teaspoons oregano
  • 1⁄4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes (can use tomato sauce in place of crushed tomatoes or use a combination of both if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste, i use seasoned salt)
  • black pepper (to taste) (optional)
  • 1 -2 teaspoon sugar (add in only if needed at the end of cooking) (optional)

Preparation of the recipe:

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil; saute the onions, Italian seasoning and oregano for about 2-3 minutes, stirring until soft but not brown.

Add in garlic and saute for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add in the tomato paste; stir and cook 1 minute.

Add in the remaining ingredients; cook and simmer on low heat for 1/2 to 3/4 hours, stirring occasionally, adding more salt if needed (the longer you cook this sauce the thicker and richer it will be!).

Cool slightly and use immediately or refrigerate up to 5 days or you may freeze.

*NOTE* freeze in plastic containers after cooled, I find that this sauce tastes even better if left in the fridge overnight to blend the flavors before using or freezing.
