Spaghetti Gravy


This gravy cannot be overcooked; the longer it simmers the better the flavor. Use this gravy on spaghetti, lasagna or any recipe calling for Italian spaghetti sauce.

  1. In a large, heavy pot, sauté onions in olive oil, adding more olive oil if necessary.
  2. When onions are almost clear, add garlic and continue to sauté.
  3. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, water, bell pepper and seasonings. Cook over low heat about 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally to check that gravy is not sticking to bottom of pot. Lower heat to simmer, if necessary.
  4. Add tomato sauce and more water if gravy is too thick. Simmer for 1 hour.
  5. Brown ground beef and sausage, if desired, in a skillet.
  6. Drain fat and add to gravy. Simmer for at least 1 hour.

Yield: 8 quarts
