My assigned blog was Growing Up Gabel.
Camille and her husband Mitch live in Las Vegas. Their warm and loving family include a daughter and a son, Ella and Miles. Gabel is the kind of blogger I respect, one who loves what she is doing and gets joy from blogging.
It was easy to select a recipe because I needed a sauce for pasta, the night, I was cooking my recipe. I found this straightforward, easy to make Sicilian Marinara Sauce and was delighted to make it. I didn't make changes to the original recipe. The only change I would make, in the future, is adding some of my home grown oregano and that is basically because it is from my garden and I am proud of our spices.
2 large cans crushed tomatoes
2 cans tomato paste
1 head of garlic, finely diced
Pinch of hot pepper flakes
1-2 Tablespoons sugar
Dried or fresh basil
Cover the bottom of a very large pot with a thin layer of olive oil. Heat over medium heat.
Open all the cans of tomatoes.
When oil is warmed, add garlic and saute for just a few minutes.
Add all tomatoes. Fill each empty can of tomatoes with water and add to the pot. Yes, it is a lot of water.
Raise heat to high.
Add in hot pepper flakes, sugar and dried basil to taste. If using fresh, add at the very end of the cooking time.
Bring sauce to a boil and then turn down heat. Simmer for 4 hours.
Eat and Enjoy.
Thanks Camille for helping feed my family and for having a welcoming blog. Thanks to April, head honcho and Suzanne, group leader of B team.
