How to Make Restaurant Style Italian Tomato Sauce


  • 1In the largest soup or sauce pot you have,I use a 12qt.pot,heat the olive oil,lightly brown the onions,ad the garlic and sautee until garlic is soft,not burned! Then add the spices,basil and the meats.Cook until meats are browned on all sides.Lower the temp to medium heat.
  • 2Open all of the tomato product,add the puree and the paste rinsing the cans with a little water to get all of the goodies! The San Marzano tomatoes should be lightly crushed,you can do this quickly in a foes processor or in a large bowl with your hands,be sur not to make them to fine as you want pieces of the tomato. Stir all the ingrediients well and simmer for one hour.
  • 3This can be jarred or put into plastic containers,tupperware then frozen for up to four months.You can use it in soups,vegetables,pasta dishes and with chicken or fish entrees as well. Enjoy!
