Francena said, "This sauce can be used for lasagna, manicotti, baked ziti and pizza".


1 medium chopped onion
15 oz can tomato sauce
12 oz can tomato purée
1 can water
Pinch of salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp sugar
1 tbsp Basil
2 Bay leaves
4 oz can slice mushrooms (in the UK I would use fresh)

  • In a small skillet sauté the chopped nionon olive oil
  • Mix the remaining ingredients together in a large pan.
  • Add sautéed onion to sauce mixture.
  • Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours stirring occasionally.

Always use a wooden spoon to stir sauce becasue a metal spoon can transfer the taste of metal to the food.

When cooking with tomatoes always add a pinch of Basil.

Serves 4 - 6
