Momma Riser's Red Sauce

An 8-12qt pot is needed. 

Puree all of the veggies pictured. Cook in large pot with 1/2 stick butter. 

  • 2 onions
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2gbp
  • 1rbp
  • 1obp
  • 1lb Roma tomatoes
  • 1lb, white mushrooms
  • 1 lb carrots
  • a handful of fresh basil. 

Brown 1lb hamburger + 1lb mild Italian sausage. Drain fat off cooked meat. (bottom right picture)

Add to cooking veggie mix. 

Open & dump all of those cans pictured above in the pot. 

  • 2 cans Campbell's Cream of Mushroom
  • 2 15 oz cans Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 8 oz can Tomato Paste
  • 1 4 oz can Tomato Paste
  • 1 27 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce

Season with salt, pepper, parsley, oregano. 

Cook on low for 3-4hrs. 

Divide into 1-2 qt batches, ziploc & freeze. I use a regular mouth canning funnel to get the sauce into bag.

Meat is optional. A dear friend of mine prefers this sauce without meat.

The Rock Star prefers a sweet red sauce. He even asked me to put sugar in my red sauce early in our marriage. Huh?!?! Am I serving this in a elementary school cafeteria? No. So I added carrots and zucchini to sweeten the sauce. He loves it. The Genius Brother thinks that this sauce is a meal by itself. I agree.
