Home-style Tomato Sauce
Submitted by Holly Chichester
Cook in a Dutch oven until onions are transparent:
Add 1 to 2 pounds Princess ground beef broken up into about 1 inch or less chunks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is slightly browned.
Add 2 large cans Muir Glen tomatoes: crushed, diced, or tomato puree or 1 large can tomatoes and 1 small can tomato paste + 1 can water. Season with ground pepper. Simmer uncovered about 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Salt to taste after simmering.
Optional: During last half hour add up to 1 cup red wine and/or diced fresh tomatoes.
Note: Sauces like this are best refrigerated overnight and used the second day. Also, the flavor can be varied considerably by using different herbs and adding mushrooms, olives, wine, fresh tomatoes or other enhancements.
Use for spaghetti, on macaroni, for lasagna or pizza. Yoghurt or freshly grated cheese may be served on the side.
Freeze in one cup containers for quick meals.
