3 (28 ounce) cans
salt and pepper to taste
fresh basil leaves
Well, it's simple. And it's garlicky. I decided to try it, just because I knew it could just become a starter if it was horrid. I HATE to give a bad review, but, Sorry, but it was. i ended up throwing the whole thing out, it was so greasy: calls for about 12x as much Olive oil as is needed to saute the garlic, in fact I usually just use non stick cooking spray and add a bit of good olive oil directly into the sauce. It was bland, watery, and...I don't even know. NOT spaghetti sauce!
It turned out very well. Next time I plan on sauteing garlic with the onions and beef. I also added a can of tomato sauce to the recipe.
The sauce was missing something and there was no indication of how much water to add. It did not turn out very well. I also think it needed a tomato paste or sauce added in addition to the crushed tomatos.
I third this recipe I added some red onions and some red peppers to this mix and I used it for pizza sauce it was good!!! I left out the water.
I added a large can of tomato sauce and halved the oil; This came out perfectly thick, creamy, and herbalicious.
I made this sauce to use on chicken parmesan and boy was it dissapointing. I tried it becuase my family loves garlic, but this just tasted like tomatoes and garlic mixed together. I will have to keep looking and reccomend you do as well.
This recipie was not what I was expecting. It tasted closer to a marinara sauce, yet bland. I think it needs something in it to bring out more of a tomato taste. I do love marinara sauce, but not with my lasagna or spaghetti sauce. However, it wasn't the watery or oily nightmare that some reviewers stated. I followed as written and it thickened up just fine. I also found that it thickened a little more when I let it sit overnight in the fridge and reheated the next day. So all and all the consistency was perfect for my taste.
