Italian Sauce Made My Way

Updated on May 26, 2011

Dad's Sauce

Virgin Olive Oil

Ground Beef or Pork Bones

4 cans of 12 oz. crushed tomatoes

2 cans of small tomatoe paste

1 onion

1 green pepper

1 red pepper

3 cloves of fresh garlic

a sprig of fresh parsely



Have to start by washing your hands and up your arms!!! Everything must be freshly cleaned and washed. Vegatables included.

Start by browning ground beef and getting all the oil from it rinsed off.

then in seperate pan, sautee' the onions, peppers, fresh garlic. when they are transparent, combine them with the meat. Now add the crushed tomatoes. use the cans to measure out one can of water, take another can and pour water into it from the first can and get all the sauce back and forth in the two cans and pour into sauce, do the same with the next two cans.

Mix in your tomatoe paste.

Now you are going to season, I do not measure, I season to taste. I take oregano, basil , salt pepper, a little sugar, more garlic powder and stir and let it cook, I let it go for twenty minutes or so until I could get a good taste, then i add more of the same a little at a time. until I feel it has the right taste. the texture should be a little thick.

I like to pour it over linguini, as that is my favorite pasta, but you can use what you like.

If you want to get fancy, instead of using ground beef, (I use that when i want quick meal) use pork bones and sautee' them up , that will add a significant taste to the sauce, I usually do that when i am making meatballs and sausage with my meal.

top it off with some nice garlic bread, either home made or bought in the freezer section of the grocery store.

a nice wine would go good with dinner, or for those of you who don't like wine, Pepsi will do... lol

enjoy, kids love it as well and its a nice filling dinner. My grandmother made it like that , and she also added potatoes for more filling. she said that is what they used to do because they were poor, I like the taste!! Happy eating hubbers...
