“We built this recipe from a lot of trial and error and a little experimentation with the wine selection. It has a sweet flavor with just a little zing to keep things interesting. Great for all types of italian dishes. We even used it for Italian sausage bombers.”

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion, green bell pepper, and garlic until onion is translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add brown sugar, Italian seasoning, salt, oregano, basil, black pepper, and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until brown sugar dissolves and seasoning is fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and white wine into the seasoned onion mixture; bring to a boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors have blended, at least 30 minutes.

We loved this!! Mr. LTH commented multiple times what a great meal this was. I used my meatballs (Meatball Nirvana) and a combination of linguini & fettucini as vehicles for this sauce. I'm lazy, so I tossed everything in the crock pot on high for 1 hour, then turned it to low (and added my already cooked meatballs) for the next few hours. Surprisingly, we were out of tomato sauce, so i subbed crushed tomatoes. I also had to sub red wine for white wine when I realized we were out of that, too. I increased the crushed red to almost a teaspoon, and it was perfect. I WILL make this again. THANK YOU for the recipe, PAcklam!

I used one sweet onion that I ran through the food processor with the garlic for a finer texture. I omitted the green pepper only because I did not have any and I went easy on the salt. I only had burgundy wine on hand, I used equal amounts in place of the white wine. I made no other changes. I paired this with Meatball Nirvana for homemade meatball sandwiches. EXCELLENT marinara sauce. I seriously can't stop taste testing it. This recipe's a keeper.
