My meatballs seem to have been a hit. They are so yummy and truly easy to make.
So now I am providing my red sauce recipe. Sorry I don’t have pictures to go with the recipe!
Lynn’s Red Sauce Recipe
(INGREDIANTS FOR 1 LARGE POT)
2 – 3 Bone-In Pork Chops
1 medium Onion
1 large Green Bell Pepper
2 – 3 Garlic Cloves
Parsley to taste
Basil to taste
Oregano to taste
4 large cans Crushed Red Tomatoes
2 cans Tomato Puree
Salt & Pepper to Taste
I try to use fresh herbs when possible.
In large pot cook pork chops in extra virgin olive oil (just enough oil to cover bottom of pot). Salt & pepper to taste. I cook until they are completely cooked.
While pork chops are cooking. Cut onion and bell pepper in slices. Mince garlic cloves. Add all to pork chops when they are about ½ - ¾ ways done cooking.
Chop Basil, Parsley, oregano set aside.
Once Pork Chops are cooked add crushed tomatoes and puree and all herbs. Bring to a boil. Once the sauce is boiling I simmer on low covered with a little breathing room for about 3 – 4 hours stirring occasionally.
Taste to see if you need a little additional salt or pepper. Remember that the pork chops add a little salt.
**When I say to taste for the herbs, it is because some people don’t like a lot of the herb taste of certain ones. We tend to like a little more basil and oregano with a little less parsley.
I double sometimes triple the recipe and put into containers to freeze. I also use to make lasagna to freeze for fast and quick meal options!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
