Start tomato and pepper seeds indoors in March and on Memorial Day weekend plant veg garden. Water, weed and fertilize all summer.
In September harvest tomatoes, peppers and onions.
To make sauce: Cook tomatoes, garlic, peppers and onions with basil, oregano, marjoram, salt and pepper. Also include olive oil, red wine, parmesan cheese.
I do not measure portions-I add seasoning to taste.
For meat portion brown, ground chuck, ground veal and either ground pork sausage or italian sausage. Once you use these meats you will never use just plain ground beef again. Add to tomato mix.
This will simmer for a while!!!!!
If I was really good I would use my pressure cooker but I fill quart jars of sauce and freeze. I cook a bit thick as it gets a bit watery after freezing and thawing.
I use this in any italian based dish. I made manicotti last week I don't have a recipe either!!
