Easy and yummy, I also used minced carrots instead of bell peppers and vegetable stock instead of wine. I added 1 tbs flour to thicken it up then I used an immersion blender to make it nice and smooth. After that I added chopped parsley, sliced mushrooms, and cooked ground beef (seasoned with garlic, onion, parley, salt/pepper) to add flavor.


I changed a lot about this recipe. First I took 3lbs of fresh garden tomatoes and halved them, coated them with olive oil and sprinkled them with dried orageno. I roasted them in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 min. I sauteed 5-6 cloves garlic, 2 onions, and 1 green pepper until fragrant and translucent in a big sauce pan. I then added 1 1/2 c fresh basil, 2-3 tsp oregano, and 2-3 tsp fresh rosemary. I sauteed that for another min. Then I placed the roasted tomatoes and all the juices in the sauce pan and simmered for 2 hours. When the tomatoes broke down I added approx. 1 cup of vodka. Simmered for another 1/2 hour and then I pureed the sauce. I added a few sprinkles of dried oregano and parsley while the sauce was cooking.


This recipe is perfect if you're looking for a good base tomato sauce. It easily lends itself to substitutions. For example, I used zuccini someone from work had given me instead of the green bell peppers.
