Sarah’s Signature Tomato/Pasta Sauce
Being Italian, I learned from an early age that you NEVER use store bought sauce! My amazing mother used my great grandmothers recipe and let me tell you …it is delicious! Home-made meatballs, lasagna, sauce, u name it and my mom would cook the heck out of it! I love her and her cooking, but I had to recreated some of her recipes in a healthier fashion:) This is my scrumptious sauce recipe and I hope this becomes part of your monthly cooking line-up!
First wash and cut stems off of the tomatoes. Diced up into small pieces.
Mince fresh garlic and add to a large crock pot.
Open all cans up and pour into the crock pot. Add tomatoes to the crock pot. Add water and the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot.
Now mix with your hands until well combined.
Put crock pot on low and let cook all day or high and let cook for a few hours. I always make my sauce the day before serving to allow for the flavors to marinate:)
This makes a good amount and can be kept in the fridge for a week or 2. I freeze any remaining sauce and just pull it out as needed for recipes.
