Granddaddy's Long Cooking Marinara Sauce

Submitted by: KATS0929

Introduction

This is a family favorite of mine. It is best not to short cut this recipe, but if you don't have the full amount of time available for cooking, you can cut down on the amount of water added.

Ingredients

    2 Tbs Olive Oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, minced or sliced
    .5 cup Tomato paste
    .5 glass of red wine
    2 28 oz. cans of crushed tomatoes
    .25 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup grated parmesan cheese
    water (one tomato can's worth)
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste, cook for another 5 minutes, stirring to get rid of any lumps.
Add wine, stir to combine and cook for approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
Add crushed tomatoes, as well as one can's worth of water.
Stir to combine.
Add sugar (to taste, I find depending on the amount of acidity in each can of tomatoes, I might need more or less sugar) and parmesan cheese.
Stir to combine.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer.
Simmer on low for 8 hours, stirring occasionally. You can split the cooking time between two days, just be sure to refridgerate in between.
