Recipe Ingredients for Meat Sauce

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 large yellow onion, cut into small dice
1 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Crushed red pepper
28 ounce tomato puree
1/2 cup water
1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 leaf large sprig fresh basil
1 pound ground beef
1 green pepper chopped

Recipe Directions for Meat Sauce

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium heat. When the pot is hot, add the olive oil. Add the garlic and onion, and season them with salt and crushed red pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion and garlic are translucent, about 4 minutes.

  2. Add the tomato puree, water, and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind to the pot. Bring to a simmer. Then cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for about 25 minutes.

  3. With the back of a knife, bruise the basil and stir the sprig into the sauce. Simmer the sauce, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Season with salt and crushed red pepper to taste, if desired. Serve, or store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

  4. Brown ground beef over low heat with chopped onion, garlic and green pepper.

  5. Top with marinara sauce and simmer until heated through.

  6. Spoon over pasta of your choice.

  7. Makes 1/2 cup servings
