Instructions
  1. Add the oil to a large sauce pan and heat.
  2. Add in the tomato paste and look cook a couple minutes. Keep it moving so it doesn’t burn, but let it get a little darker.
  3. Add in all seasonings to the tomato paste. Stir and cook a couple minutes
  4. Add in tomato sauce, tomatoes, and water. Stir until combined and let come to a simmer.
  5. Reduce heat cover and let simmer for about 2 hours. Stiring every 30 minutes or so.
  6. At the last 30 minutes taste to adjust seasonings. If you are going to puree do so now, I use an immersion blender to ensure that it is not to chunky.
Recipe Notes

1/4 – 1/2 cup of red wine or cooking red wine goes well in┬áthe sauce too.

To make it a bit spicier add in more red pepper flakes, watch out though a little goes a long way.

I have also sauteed garlic and onion before adding the tomato paste.
