Foolproof Marinara

Technically this is my husband's recipe. I give him full credit because I never made great sauce like this until I met  him. Hopefully I get it right!


Start by heating your skillet up with some olive oil. While the oil is heating chop up your onion Try not to cry! 




Brown your meat [if using] while softening your onions and garlic. 




Add desired choice of red sauce. [Mine here is half jar sauce & half canned diced tomatoes-I also threw in some fresh tomatoes at the end]


Stir up ingredients and add seasonings and brown sugar. 


Simmer for 10-15 minutes. 
 Serve over pasta & enjoy!



Homemade Red Sauce 
Recipe by The Apron Gal


Ingredients:
-1 pound lean ground turkey or beef [optional]
-2 teaspoons minced garlic
-1 large yellow onion
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-2 tablespoons Italian seasoning 
-Garlic salt to taste
-1 jar of favorite red sauce 
OR any combination of canned diced tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, and canned tomato sauce


Directions:


Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat, add garlic. Brown meat in skillet and soften onions. *Add your choice of canned tomatoes or sauce or combination thereof. Add Italian seasoning, garlic salt and brown sugar. Simmer for 10-15 minutes to let flavors soak in. 


Serve over pasta with Parmesan cheese on top. 


*Note-choose your tomato products according to the chunkiness level you prefer. For this batch I did half pre-made tomato sauce with half diced tomatoes. I also threw in a few fresh tomatoes I was trying to use up.
