This is a really delicious and authentic homemade spaghetti sauce recipe that I got from my Grandma who got it from one of her friends who owns an Italian bakery and store called Roma Bakery. This recipe is really good and simple to make and it is worth every bite.
Here are some of the tomato ingredients that are used and that I purchased at Roma Bakery. I was so excited to find San Marzano tomatoes because they always talk about San Marzano tomatoes on the Food Network and how wonderful they are, but, I could never find them. But, I finally did at Roma. The recipe also calls for a large can of 6 in 1 tomatoes and I am not really sure what the difference is....it says they are all purpose ground tomatoes with added extra heavy puree, so if you can't find them anywhere I would just use ground tomatoes or another can of pureed tomatoes.
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1 medium or large onion, chopped
-1 clove of garlic, chopped (or more to your taste preference)
-1 small can tomato paste
-1/2 cup of red wine (optional)
-1 can 6 in 1
-1 can (28 oz.) pureed tomatoes
-1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
-1/2 teaspoon dried basil
-salt and pepper to taste
-3/4 cup water
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil, onion, and garlic. Saute until translucent and soft.
Add tomato paste and cook for a few minutes.
Add 6 in 1, pureed tomatoes, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, water, and red wine if using. Cover and simmer at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionaly. I also added sauteed mushrooms. Enjoy over your favorite pasta!
