This sauce is a base for lots of things I like to make. I have not bought jar sauce for years.
2-28 oz. jars of diced tomatoes with puree
1 half of a sweet onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
3 or 4 garlic cloves
8 oz. baby bella mushrooms, sliced
about 1 tablespoon Penzey pasta sprinkle
In a large, heavy sauce pan saute the onion and garlic in olive oil. Add the red pepper and mushrooms, cook until the mushrooms are reduced.
Add the tomatoes and pasta sprinkle. Simmer for an hour or so or place in a crock pot on low for 3 to 4 hours.
You can add meat to the sauce such as sausage.
