Aunt T's Famous Red Sauce

This red sauce --- how do I even begin? I use this sauce for spaghetti, lasagne, and chicken parmesan. I whip up a batch on Sunday and get two or three full meals from it. This sauce freezes great; it’s super versatile and an absolute favorite in my kitchen.

In a large pan, heat ¼ cup of olive oil over medium heat. Add 3 cloves of minced garlic and 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add:

3 - 16 oz cans tomato sauce

2 - 16 oz cans crushed tomatoes

1 - 4 oz can tomato paste

Stir and heat until well blended, then mix in:

1T onion powder

1T garlic powder

1T oregano

1T basil

1T parsley

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

¼ tsp red chili flakes

¼ cup fresh, grated parmesan  

Turn heat to low and simmer 4 hours.
