Our Italian Red Sauce Recipe

Hello, readers!

Today, I’m posting a recipe, and I think I’m going to add this as a weekly feature during the summer (now that my semester is almost over). This recipe has been handed down from my mother-in-law to me.

I’m going to post the handwritten recipes for you, so you can see exactly how I do it. I make a small modification to her recipe in that I add tomato paste to the sauce. As she does, after I sauté the onions and garlic, I remove them and let the flavor sit in the olive oil. The rest I do pretty much as she does, although I throw a big ole bunch of basil in my sauce (or gravy, as they call it in Italy).

If you have any questions, let me know. I serve the sauce over our favorite pastas, and to be a little healthier, we use the whole wheat pasta these days.

Enjoy. Mangia!

This is the first time I’ve used the Instagram stories to show how I made a recipe (minus the meatballs), so I decided to put it together in this short video.
