How to make it
- Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until softened, but not browned. Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, parsley, your choice of seasonings, carrots, bay leaf and wine if you prefer to use it. Bring to a boil and then quickly lower to a gentle simmer. Stir occasionally for about 30 minutes.
- You may substitute whole, peeled fresh Roma tomatoes when they are in season. Watch out for high sodium content in the lesser quality brands of canned tomatoes.
- As soon as the mixture begins to simmer, you may then add cooked meatballs, italian sausage or whatever meat you prefer. They enhance the flavor of the sauce.
- Only Let Simmer Another 15 - 20 minutes with the meat...then serve!
