This is the best sauce I've ever had. It comes from my husband's cousin's, Tony and Maria, both Philadelphia Italians.
I used to make sauce from scratch, then went to prepared sauces. Since Tony and Maria shared this recipe with me it's the only one I use now.
It is a quick and easy basic sauce (or gravy) recipe that is delicious on it's own or can be adapted into lots of other dishes.
I make this sauce probably once a month, freeze what I don't use right away so I always have some on hand .
TONY AND MARIA'S 20 MINUTE SAUCE
1 28 ounce can tomato sauce
1 28 ounce can tomato puree
2 cups water
1 small can tomato paste
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 tablespoons fresh chopped garlic
To a large non reactive saucepan, combine all ingriedients. Simmer 20 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
That's it! Not only is it easy but it's healthy too.
