How To Make a Smooth and Savory Red Sauce (Spaghetti Sauce)

This red sauce recipe goes great with Spaghetti or any other type of pasta. made using mostly tomatoes, peppers, and some aromatics; this smooth and savory red sauce is simple and unforgettable.

  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 cups of red wine (whatever you like to drink is fine here)
  • 6 cloves of garlic sliced thin
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh Basil (tear)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh Oregano

Add wine and deglaze the pan. Scrape up all of the fond on the bottom of the pan (food particles left on the bottom of the pan while cooking down the vegetables.). Reduce wine in pan by half. Add Tomatoes and cook down for 4-6 hours. Using a immersion blender, blend to desired consistency. I like a fairly smooth red sauce.
