Don’t worry, I’m Italian. It’s okay that I said filthy. The worcestershire is probably the most bastardized part about this recipe, really.
The sauce is deceptively simple to make, since it’s devestatingly good. That’s all you need to know.
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped relatively fine
5 cloves garlic, minced fine
2 cans tomato sauce(I don’t know, the big ones from Hunt’s, apple juice size)
1 bay leaf
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup grated parmesan or romano, or just the rind is fine.
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 – 1/2 tsp black pepper
A big splash of worcestershire sauce
Sweat the onions in oil till translucent, over medium, then add garlic and cook for a minute or so, but don’t let it burn! You’ll ruin it! Then, just throw everything else in. Let it simmer, covered, on low heat for 3-4 hours. Put in some quickly sautéed meatballs, sautéed ground beef or pork (or both! I don’t care!), chicken breast, leg, whatever you’ve got. You will have the best tomato sauce of your life.
