Everyone loves a great tomato sauce, that can be used for so many dishes.
I use my sauce for lasagna, on top of pasta, polenta and in dishes like Baked Zucchini Cheese Parcels. I also use beef tomato sauce in casseroles and rice pilafs.
2 750 ml of crushed tomatoes or passata
750 grams ground beef
2 onions, finely diced
3 large garlic cloves, minced
10 basil leaves, shredded
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp pepper
1 Tbsp dried oregano
3 Tbsp olive oil
- In a large sauce pan, sautee the onions for 2-3 mins, add garlic and sautee for 1 min.
- Add beef and keep mixing and breaking up the meat until no longer pink.
- Stir in all spices and tomatoes, reduce heat to a low temperature, and continue to slow simmer for 60 minuntes.
