Cook briefly not to burn garlic. (Garlic turns bitter if over browned)Add the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste with 2 cups of water. Stir. Add remaining ingredients.The sauce should simmer for at least 1 ½ - 2 hours with lid partially covering pan. Stir occasionally to prevent sauce sticking to the bottom of pan.
