How to make it

  • Cover bottom of deep frying pan with olive oil.
  • Sauté onion and garlic until transparent.
  • Add mushrooms and pepper, cook 4-5 minutes longer.
  • Add remaining ingredients excepting meatballs, adding more water if it seems too thick, and stir to combine well.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on low, stirring occasionally, for at least 1 hour.
  • Add more water now and then if sauce seems too thick, but it should be a thick sauce!
  • After 1 hour, add the cooked meatballs and cook 15 minutes more, or until they are thoroughly hot.
  • Serve on al dente spaghetti noodles with grated Parmesan and, if you wish, a few fresh basil leaves on top.
  • Or, make sauce the day before and keep in fridge overnight. Warm slowly the next day and serve as above-- even more flavorful then!
