Red Sauce...Have Passed This Recipe Around For Years

My sister-in-law Liz gave me a recipe for red sauce some years back that she got from a cooking class she took at Byerly’s in Minneapolis.

My friends and I have passed this recipe back and forth over the years in an effort to improve it. See what you can do to add your own and send it back to me with your magic.

The best thing about this recipe after you get all of the ingredients in the saucepan is that you get to let it simmer all day. Super easy and great to feed a crowd. Serve over the pasta of your choice with an exceptional Italian bread. Don’t forget to get a high-quality Italian bread. The bread may be the side but it will also be one of the essentials that you will remember about the meal.

Here is the list of ingredients that we have so far:

4 cups chopped Roma Tomatoes

1 ½ cups chopped mushrooms

1 ½ cups chopped onion

¼ cup lemon juice

½ medium size banana pepper

1 Tbsp sugar

½ tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp Italian Spices

1 tsp Oregano

3 tsp crushed garlic

1 chicken bullion cube

1 6 ox can tomato paste

2 cups red wine

1 tsp olive oil
