Awesome Pasta Sauce

  Hi Everybody!!I just wanted to share a recipe that my Mom makes sometimes and is actually making tonight. It is really good!!


    4 Tbsp vegetable oil
    1 Karge onion
    2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil, divided
    5 Garlic cloves, crushed
    1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
    3 (28- oz) cans plum tomatoes
    3 (28-oz)cans crushed tomatoes
    31/2 cups water
    6 Tsp sugar
    1 Tsp salt
    1 lb sweet Italian sausage links
    1 lb uncooked meatballs

  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot for 30 seconds. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes. Add 1 Tbsp basil, garlic, and oregano. Saute for 1 minute.
  2. Add tomatoes, water, sugar, and salt. Bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and add sausage and meatballs.
  3. Simmer for 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally to make sure nothing sticks to the pot. Remove meats to a platter. Stir in remaining basil. Taste and add salt, if needed.
  4. Serve over pasta, adding meats and topping with Parmesan, if desired.
Serves: 8
