This recipe calls for very little time in the kitchen (it looks like a ton of ingredients, but it’s really a lot of herbs). If you can pre-plan about 45 minutes to an hour before you want to sit down and eat, with only about 10 minutes of hands on time and the occasional check and stir, this is the recipe for you.

Add to favorites:


1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped or pressed through a garlic mincer

1 24 oz can of crushed tomatoes

1 Tbsp of tomato paste

1/2 tsp of sugar

1/4 to 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes

1/3 cup of dry Marsala wine (or any other dry red wine you may have on hand)

1 Tbsp of Italian seasoning

1/2 Tbsp of dried basil

2 bay leaves

1/2 Tbsp of dried Oregano

1/2 Tbsp of dried Thyme

1/2 Tbsp of Worcester sauce

Salt to taste


1In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, add olive oil

2Once olive oil is heated, add in diced onions and some salt (about 1/2 a tsp). Saute until tender (about 5 minutes). You may need to lower your heat if you notice your onions are browning.

3Add minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds.

4Add in all other listed ingredients, about 1/2 tsp more of salt, stir, and lower heat to low or medium low so that the pot maintains a simmer but is not boiling.

5Stir the sauce every few minutes

6After about 10 to 15 minutes, taste the sauce and adjust seasoning to your taste.

7Let the sauce continue to cook for about another 10 to 15 minutes or until you feel the flavor has melded nicely.
