Introduction

My mom's ancient recipe, tweaked for weight loss, is meant to be simmered on the stove all day, or at least 3 hours. If you don't have the time for that, cut down on the water to 1/2-1 C and simmer for an hour. This makes a lot and freezes beautifully for use in lots of different recipes.

Ingredients

    2 med onions (1.5 C chopped)
    4 cloves minced garlic
    2 t EVOO
    2 28-oz cans diced or crushed tomatoes, low sodium
    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    1/2-2 C water
    1-2 t salt (to taste)
    1/4 t pepper
    1/2 t nutmeg
    1/2 t allspice
    1 T oregano
    1 T basil
    1 T ground fennel
    1 packet of Splenda (or 1 T sugar)
    1/2 C chopped parsley
    1/2 C grated parmesan cheese (the good stuff in wedges)

Directions

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil til soft. Add tomatoes, paste and water. Simmer a minimum of 1 hour & add 1/2 cup water; 3-4 hours is better (+ 2 C water). Keep at a very low simmer, mostly covered but vented. The result should be very thick.

In the last 20 minutes of cooking, add S,P, spices, sugar/splenda, parsley and cheese. Stir frequently at first to prevent cheese from settling on bottom and burning.

If properly reduced, this should make approx 15 1/2-cup servings.
