Today's Yummy Treats are one of my "Quick & Easy Fav's"
"My Momma's Amazing Sauce"
What you need
1 Large Can Chopped Tomato's
(I get the big restaurant size it's a much better price)
1 Small can of Tomato Paste
1 Large Onion ( I like white for this sauce)
1 Clove if garlic ( you can add less if you like)
1 TB's Olive Oil (use the good kind it's so worth it)
Fresh Basil (Organic)
1 Jar Artichoke quarters
A pinch of sugar
1/2 cup really good "Cab or Burgandy" wine (If you like)
1/2 Cup water
White Pepper (Add to taste)
Oh...I just had to share these with you...My New measuring spoons ...arn't they FUN...you can now find them everywhere...I actully found them at my post office (little store PO combo)
I start with a little Olive Oil, Onion and Garlic
Do a fine chop on both Onions and Garlic...start your onions first, get them a golden carmel color then add your garlic....Don't let them turn brown before you get your tomato sauce in...Or you sauce will taste bitter....
I chop my green olives very fine ...You can also chop and add black olives too...they give a different taste to the sauce ....Do a ruff chop to the Artichokes ...Add them all to your simmering onions and let them all simmer together for about 3 minutes...
Add you tomato's and paste to you chopped veggies....stir really good...You can add a little water about 1/2 cup and your wine so your sause can cook down....
Add a TS of dryed basil once your tomato sauce is all in....Let simmer while you paint your nails :-)
Your sauce will glisten from the yummy olive oil....
I pick white pepper it gives that bite to your sauce while giving you a smooth peppery taste....
This is a great simple "Quick & Easy" sauce with all the true tastes of Old Italy....
