From member ...... My Italian bones were aching for some real authentic Italian, particularly spaghetti sauce. So, I have created an original...what I and 10 of my friends think is a real taste of Italy.
14.5 oz can nsa diced tomatoes 2 (8 oz) cans nsa tomato sauce 1/8 cup minced onion 1½ teaspoon basil 1 teaspoon oregano 1 bay leaf 1¼ teaspoon freshly minced garlic 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar ¼ cup red wine (Burgundy is good) ½ teaspoon crushed red chili (the chili you sprinkle on pizza) 1 teaspoon onion powder ¼ teaspoon Mrs. Dash ¼ cup sliced portabella mushrooms (optional)
Put all ingredients into saucepan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to just simmer. Continue to simmer uncovered for 30-40 minutes, letting flavors blend and sauce thicken. The longer you simmer, the thicker the sauce will get. Serving idea: Sprinkle ½ cup cooked spaghetti squash with 2 oz seasoned cooked ground turkey or beef. Cover with 1 ladle of sauce.
