Recipe Ingredients for Italian Tomato Sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion
1 medium green bell pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 teaspoon salt
28 ounce crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley

Recipe Directions for Italian Tomato Sauce

  1. Finely dice onion (should be about 1 cup) and finely dice green pepper. Use a generous handful or two of chopped parsley.

  2. Place a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. After about a minute, add the olive oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, herbs, and salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is very tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. Add the tomatoes, eater, tomato paste, and black pepper. Use a spoon to break up the tomatoes if they are in rather large chunks. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.

  4. Add the parsley, stir, and serve.
