                         -----TOMATO SAUCE - BASIC-----
      1/4  cup           Olive oil
    1      teaspoon      Salt
    1      Medium        onion -- chopped
      1/2  teaspoon      Pepper
    3      Cloves        garlic -- minced
      1/2  teaspoon      Sugar
    1      28 ounce Can  Progresso crushed tomato
      1/4  cup           Freshly chopped parsley
    1      28 ounce Can  Progresso Italian style
      1/4  cup           Freshly chopped basil
    1                    Bay leaf
 
 Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in medium saucepan till translucent.
 Put Italian style tomatoes in blender; puree, and pour into saucepan. Add can of
crushed tomatoes. Add Italian seasoning, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and sugar.
Simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
 Add fresh parsley and chopped basil and simmer another 15 minutes. If you would
like to add browned ground beef, meatballs, or sausage....this would be the
perfect sauce to do so. If you prefer a thicker sauce, add a Tbl or two of tomato
paste. I personally just don't think it needs it. Rita in Scottsdale 03/24/92
