Sunday Scrumptious Sauce Satisfier

I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend and an even happier Sunday!
Today's Sunday Satisfier recipe comes from my Nana who taught my mom, who then passed on to me, how to make basic red tomato sauce. This sauce is so great and can be used as a basic red sauce for many pasta dishes like lasagna, chicken parmesan, stuffed shells, etc! I made it for the first time by myself a few nights ago, added some meatballs, then tossed over some thin spaghetti noodles and it was so good...and SO EASY! There is nothing better than homemade red sauce! Try it... you will be surprised at how easy it really is!

Easy Basic Red Sauce

Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lg. can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste

Pour just enough olive oil to cover bottom of skillet. Warm olive oil; add onions and garlic and sauté until translucent. Add tomato paste and stir with onions and garlic; mix well. Add 1 can of water (using tomato paste can). Add tomato sauce to mixture; stir well. Add 1 can of water (using tomato sauce can). Cook for 20 minutes and add salt and pepper, to taste. Continue to cook on low, uncovered, for 1-2 hours or until sauce is thick enough to your liking. *If it is too tart, add a little sugar to cut the tart flavor.
