Number of Servings: 6


    3 14oz cans Diced Tomatoes (no salt added)
    1 6oz can Tomato paste
    3 - 4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 medium onions, diced
    2 tsp oregano
    2 tsp basil
    2 tsp sugar
    1 tsp salt
    pepper to taste
    .25 cup grated parmesan


Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Gently simmer for at least two hours. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes.

For company I sometimes add one pound 96% lean ground beef or a pound of ground turkey, which I cook first with some of the garlic and one of the onions - just don't forget to add in the extra calories.
