This is as close to my mom's and Nonna's sauce that you can get to.
This weekly sauce addition in our family is perfect for pasta or any other dish I may want to make like pizza. It's simple and tasty and also freezes beautifully.


Passata 20 Ounce
Fresh italian parsley sprigs 6
Fresh basil sprigs 2
Onion 1 Small , halved
Garlic cloves 2 , halved
Extra virgin olive oil
Dried oregano leaves 1 Tablespoon
Salt 2 Teaspoon
Hot pepper flakes 1/4 Teaspoon



Pour passata into large saucepan. 

Add parsley, basil, onion, garlic, oil, oregano, salt and hot pepper flakes. 

Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to medium-low; cook for about 2 hours or until reduced slightly and thickened.
