Homemade Red Sauce
Recipe by The Apron Gal
-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
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.
