My wife wanted meatballs and a salad last night so I whipped up an easy Marinara sauce. Meatballs came from the family owned neighborhood butcher.
One 28 oz Can Tomato Puree
One 14.5 Can Tomato Paste
One 6 oz Can Diced Tomatoes
Three Cloves Garlic
One Half Cup Dry Wine
Salt & Pepper
Sorry, I do not measure seasonings. I add what seems right to me and adjust to taste while cooking. I like to smash the diced tomatoes with a fork before adding.
SautÃ© the onions and garlic in the olive oil then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes. Its best if you refrigerate overnight before using, I did not as my wife informed me of her desire yesterday afternoon. At that point I added the meatballs and let simmer for another 30 minutes then turned the heat way down and let sit until dinner, an hour later.
A couple of crusty rolls, salad, the meatballs, and we were happy campers.
