Introduction

This sauce recipe was based on a Jo Mama's World Famous Spaghetti sauce recipe that I modified for taste. When I make this sauce, it quickly disappears in my house. Everyone seems to loves this sauce.

Ingredients

    1 small onion, chopped
    3-4 garlic cloves, minced

    1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
    2 (6 oz.) cans tomato paste
    2 (15 oz.) cans tomato sauce

    1 cup water (for simmering, I simmer for about 1 hour, adjust the amount of water for less simmering time)

    2 teaspoons basil
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
    2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
    1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1/8-1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (Depending on taste)
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon salt

    1/4 cup red wine (I use a good quality Cabernet)

Directions

Serves 8
(Serving Size = 3/4 Cup Servings)

Cook onions in stockpot on medium heat, stirring occasionally until onions are softened.

Add garlic and crushed red pepper. Cook until garlic is soft. Be careful not to brown.

Add tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce and water.

Add oregano, thyme, basil, parsley, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, and salt.

Stir well. Do not bring sauce to a boil.

Stir in red wine.

Reduce medium heat to low. Simmer on low, stirring frequently for about an hour.

Enjoy!

This sauce freezes nicely. I sometimes make this sauce and freeze it for other dishes I enjoy making. I have a turkey meatball recipe listed on this web site that goes well with this recipe. I recently added a Baked Ziti and Eggplant Lasagna recipe that also uses this sauce in it.

    I thought this sauce was good, but nothing special. I thought it tasted like your average run of the mill tomato sauce. I will say though, that I am picky about my sauces. I think it needs the quantities of the spices increased to add more flavor. - 8/8/11

    absolutely wonderful. Beats any other homemade sauce I've tried!!! Wonderful flavor. I did add an additional teaspoon of italian seasoning because I didn't have any thyme and not enough basil! - 4/15/10

    WOW! Fantastic. Both the hubby & I loved it. I did add mushrooms, beef, peppers, and Parmesan but it was the sauce that had all the flavor. Wish I could eat more!! - 7/2/12
