This is an easy recipe. You can use canned tomatoes instead of fresh from the garden canned tomatoes or tomato juice and more tomato paste if you don't like your pasta sauce chunky.

How to Make Nana Viano's Sunday Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. Add 2 T. of olive oil to a deep skillet or Dutch oven to brown meat with fresh garlic and minced onion.
  2. When the meat is brown, add dry ingredients to meat and cook for 3 minutes on medium low heat. All of the dry ingredients are subject to your discretion. My Nana never measured anything. If I were guessing, I would say she used at least 1T of Italian seasoning, but the salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and sugar were mostly to taste.
  3. Add tomato paste to meat and cook for 2 minutes to get the seasonings melded with the tomato paste.
  4. Add tomatoes to meat mixture and stir, let this simmer over a low heat for 2.5 hours. Stir occasionally. Serve over pasta of your choice with grated parmesan cheese.
