Sauce that momma made Sauce that momma made
Number of Servings: 8


    ground beef, brown & drain (or turkey if you like) 16 oz.
    garlic, minced, I use at least 3 cloves
    onion minced if you like
    2 28oz cans tomato puree see Note
    spices, basil, Italian, garlic, oregano, parsley all to taste.
    olive oil to brown the meat, onions and garlic
    sugar just a pinch!


Note: In the summer I would use mostly fresh Roma tomatoes from my garden. The rest of the year I use a can of crushed tomatoes, a can of tomato puree and a can of whole tomatoes that I break into pieces with my hand. Also you must use 3 Bay Leaves, that is the key to the great flavor.


Brown beef, drain. Add onions, garlic till soft. Add tomatoes, spices and simmer 2-3 hours.
Of course, momma only used plum tomatoes when she had them. She also used Italian sausage. I tried to make a lower sodium version but if I had the sausage I'd boil them first, then brown and add to sauce. Also, sometimes she would add pork with bones to the sauce. Now that I think about it, this isn't anything like momma's !
