How to make it
- In a 5 quart or bigger sauce pan heat 1 or 2 TBSP of olive oil.
- In the heated oil place chopped onion, cook til tender add 3 cloves of garlic & bell pepper.
- When pepper starts to get tender add sliced fresh mushroom.Cook till mushroom starts changing color
- Add your Spices. I like heavy on the basil,Oregano,Fennel seed, a little salt & pepper. This is where you make the sauce your own by spicing the way you like.
- Add a splash of wine or Sherry enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook til most of the liquid is cooked off
- Add tomato puree, tomato sauce, tomato paste.
- Bring to a boil, add a pinch of sugar (important) Reduce heat to low and simmer for at least an hour an hr allowing all the flavors to blend together and the sauce to thicken.
