Why I Love This Recipe

This is a basic, meatless sauce. I used it my Eggplant Parmesan dish. Yum! I would like to try it again and chunk -it-up with sautéed zucchini, onion, mushroom, bell pepper….

Ingredients You'll Need

1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon butter
1-6 oz. can tomato paste
1-28 oz. can crushed tomatoes (or puree)
1/2 of the 28 oz. can water
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon chicken or beef base
1 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


Combine all ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 1 hour until thickened.

Serve over hot cooked pasta.
