My Grandma is the best cook! Growing up, we loved having family dinners there because we knew it would be good. Our favorite meal? Her spaghetti and meatballs. Just walking in the house and smelling the goodness made me drool like a dog. It was so good! When I got married, she started writing down the recipes for me. It was actually hard for her to do because she didn’t measure; she had been making and cooking the recipes for so long, it was instinctive. Which is why they are so good. I’m going to be sharing the yumminess and her recipes here on the blog and it seemed only fitting to begin by sharing her marinara sauce. It is so easy, especially if you use a crockpot, but your family will think you spent all day cooking it! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
- ½ cup beef bouillon
- 2 Can (14 oz) tomatoes ( crushed )
- 2 Can (8 oz) tomato sauce
- 1 Can (6 oz) tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 2 clove(s) garlic ( chopped )
- 1 onion ( small, diced )
- ½ green peppers ( diced )
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- To taste salt & pepper
- In large pot, saute onion, garlic, and pepper in oil. When vegetables are limp, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer over low heat for 2 hours. You may also cook in a crockpot. For that, saute the vegetables (onion, garlic, and pepper) in oil in small skillet. Add them into crockpot and then add the rest of the ingredients. Cook over low heat for 4-6 hours.
