“In Sicily a good tomato sauce is considered an absolute basic in the kitchen.”
1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
9 cups cored, chopped very fresh tomatoes
4 28-oz cans whole tomatoes, crushed with juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup homemade chicken stock
1 tsp dried marjoram
1 tsp dried rosemary
6 tablespoons butter
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste (about 10 dashes each)
Heat an 8 to 10-quart heavy bottom pot and add the oil, garlic, and onion. Saute until the onion is clear. Add the remaining ingredients except butter and salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and gently cook, uncovered 4 hours, stirring often. Stir in the butter and salt and pepper to taste.
This delicious sauce freezes well. I used almost all of it with two shredded pot roasts for our Bolognese dinner with our firemen and their wives.
P.S. There is one handsome (aren’t they all?), single fireman available. Ladies feel free to contact me. You must live locally (Portland, Oregon), have a huge, genuine heart, be intelligent, beautiful inside and out, and have a great smile.
My old, laminated recipe…. Not sure who to give credit to?
Bon Appetit & Namaste!
