Classic Italian Sauce

  • 1 small onion; diced
  • 3 cloves garlic; minced
  • 2 (32 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
  • 8-10 basil leaves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • Olive oil; as needed
  • Sugar; as needed
  • Salt and pepper; to taste

The perfect sauce to compliment our Herb and Parmesan Meatballs!

Cover the bottom of a large soup pan with oil. Turn heat to medium and add onions and garlic. Cook until translucent. Add tomatoes, basil, and bay leaves and let simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add butter and mix until incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste. If sauce is too acidic add sugar one tablespoon at a time until desired taste is reached.
