One of the items I received from Tuttorosso
was recipe cards. Always on the lookout for new recipes to try I grabbed the one for Quick and Savory Pasta Sauce
and got to work!
I made a few small tweaks to the ingredient list based on my likes (aka I prefer ground meat over sausage) so definitely go with what you like!
My supermarket had a “meatloaf”mix which was a combination of ground beef, pork and veal. I prefer the mix because I feel it doesn’t get as dried out and has more flavor. If you want to go the all ground beef/turkey/whatever route – go for it! I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
First add the olive oil to a pot over medium/high heat.
Add the minced garlic.
Add the 2 cans of tomatoes (crushed and sauce), tomato paste, basil, oregano, sugar, and water. Season with salt and pepper.
Toss in the fresh parsley.
Bring the sauce up to a boil. Once boiling reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 30 minutes to blend all of the flavors.
While simmering make your favorite pasta and some garlic bread. Before you know it it will be time to dig in! Be prepared, you will have more sauce than you know what to do with. I let mine cool and put it in a freezer bag to use another time. You could even freeze individual portions (I should have thought of that sooner!!)
