How to Make Mother's Tomato Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the onion and half of the oil in a saucepan and cook until the onion is lightly browned.
  2. Add tomatoes, carrot, parsley, garlic, salt, basil and celery.
  3. Cook, covered, over moderate heat, stirring very occasionally, for 1/2 hour or until the vegetables are very soft.
  4. Strain through a food mill, taste for salt and adjust if necessary. (If sauce is too thin, place on heat again to thicken. )
  5. Remove from heat, add the remaining oil and stir.
  6. NOTE: For a marinara or a more piquant sauce, just before adding the last oil, add 1/4 teaspoon crushed hot red pepper and 1 clove garlic passed through a garlic press or chopped very fine.
