How to Make Tastes like it cooked all day - tomato sauce


  • 1In a large stock pot, saute garlic in olive oil for about 3 to 5 minutes until just cooked. Add sauce, tomatoes, basil, cheese, oregano, beef base (or bouillon cubes) and cook for about an hour on medium-low, stirring often.
  • 2Remove from the heat and add margarine. (I know this sounds odd - (but it cuts down on the acidic nature of the tomatoes and gives it very smooth taste!)
