Grandma’s Spagetti Sauce

1T EVOO
1 green pepper, diced
1 sweet onion, diced
5-7 cloves of garlic, minced
28oz can petite diced tomatoes
15oz can petite diced tomatoes
28oz can crushed tomatoes
2t dried basil
1/2t dried oregano
1-2t sugar
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste

PREP

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat add EVOO, green pepper, onion, and garlic. Sauté till the onion is translucent. Add basil and oregano, stir and let simmer for a couple minutes.
    – If you are adding ground turkey, sausage, or very lean beef….this would be the time to do it.
  2. Add diced tomatoes (do not drain), sugar, salt, and pepper, and cook till they start to soften and fall apart. About 8-10 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes. Simmer on very low heat for minimum of 15 minutes. This can simmer, covered, much longer if needed. Serve over your favorite pasta or veggie.

Tip: If your people don’t like green pepper and onion, toss it in the food processor. The tomatoes will hide the chunks. You can also use all crushed tomatoes if you need to be completely chunk-free.
