Maria's Tomato-Basil Spaghetti Sauce
Ingredients40 m servings 231 cals
- Puree tomatoes in a food processor until smooth; strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl.
- Heat olive oil in a large, deep pot over medium heat. Stir strained tomatoes, onion, Parmesan cheese, basil, garlic, and red wine together in the pot with the oil; season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until thickened, about 25 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- You can add your favorites to make this your 'signature sauce,' such as Italian sausage, meatballs, ground beef, peppers, etc. You can make it different every time!
- If time doesn't permit, canned tomatoes will work nicely in place of the fresh.
