Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4½ - 5 pounds Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1½ tablespoons
  • Paula Deen's House Seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic powder)
  • 1½ tablespoons Italian Seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon of crushed peppers
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil
  1. Heat olive oil in deep skillet. Add garlic and onions and saute until soft (about 5 mins). Add tomatoes, Paula Deen's Seasoning, Italian seasoning, and crushed peppers. Stirring often, bring to a boil over high heat. Continue cooking over medium high heat for at least 20 minutes .. burning off the extra liquid. Stir every so often.
  2. Taste and add additional seasoning if necessary.
  3. Add basil. Turn down heat to low and simmer. Let simmer about 2 hours (can be done for less time but more flavor develops over time.) Stir every so often. If it gets too thick, stir in a little water.
  4. Remove bay leaf and serve or use in another recipe.
  5. Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or frozen for later.
