Busy day today, but I do have this simmering on the stove and it smells GOOD!
This is how you get sweet revenge upon a few killer tomatoes...
Tipsy Tomato Sauce
2 large onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/3 C. olive oil
15 large tomatoes
2 C. red wine
12 oz. tomato paste
1 1/2 ts. salt
1/2 ts. pepper
4 ts. Italian Seasoning (Pizza Magic if you can find it)
Saute the onions, garlic and olive oil until golden, about 10 minutes, in a large pot. Rough chop the tomatoes and add to the pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced & thickened to your liking. I keep it simmering for hours until it's super thick and rich.
Freeze in pint jars or keep in refrigerator for 2 weeks.
We use this in so many ways: add a few more spices to create pasta sauce, pizza sauce, add some to soups & stews, make a marinara or use it as is for a mild, richly flavored sauce.
