All-Purpose Tomato Sauce

DSC00007_1

Basic Tomato Sauce

2 28 oz. cans diced tomatoes (preferably Muir Glen)
1 14.5 oz. can plum tomatoes, drained
2 tb. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1/3 c. finely chopped carrot (the food processor makes short work of this)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. red wine
2 Tb. tomato paste
2 Tb. roughly chopped fresh Italian parsley
3 Tb. chopped, fresh oregano (or 1 tb. dried)*
2 Tb. chopped, fresh basil (or 2 t. dried)*
1/2 t. sugar
1 t. coarse salt
Lots of freshly ground black pepper

In a dutch oven, heat the oil, and slowly saute the garlic, onion, and carrot until the onion is translucent. Add the diced and plum tomatoes, wine, tomato paste, herbs, sugar, salt and pepper. (Add meatballs) Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, and then, remove the cover and simmer another 30-45 minutes.

*Fresh, is, of course, better, but if it's winter or raining in your garden, dried will work.

Dear Brandon,

One of the article groups on my site is recipes ... while searching for details on olive garden recipes, I came across this post .

It is widely accepted that a lot of the best articles on the internet is created by individuals who blog ... good quality content without the bias and waffle often found elsewhere.

Judging by your blog title and content I believe you are interested in olive garden recipes, and will therefore find our recipes category to be of interest. I am frequently looking for individuals to submit articles on their pet subjects and help me to build the directory to everyone's benefit. As a contributor, you get the recognition of having your article published and seen by thousands of web users. The pride and satisfaction of seeing your article published in a prestige directory is hard to beat.

Few of us are gifted with the ability to write to professional standards of grammatical correctness ... as a result, many bloggers don't bother to have their articles published.

I accept articles written in an informal style that matches your personality and fits in with your article content. I also welcome articles that are uniquely based on your personal knowledge, experiences and opinions. All I ask is that your articles do not contain vulgar language, incite hatred or generally offensive.

There are no costs involved ... please come over and have a look at my blog articles directory for yourself.

Kind Wishes
Emily

I have no idea what I'm doing here - I was actually looking for articles on publishing cookbooks. I guess I must have found a search engine with a sense of humor.

Still, no harm done. Just thought I'd say hello.
Best wishes
Michael

Good Morning ##NAME##, I find reading blog articles like ##TITLE## most rewarding at times. It enhances the experiences of life in many cases.

Being a physician, amongst other things I often have a soft spot for blogs related to web content and /or sites that are built around web content type items.

Once again, thank you ##NAME##, and I will look for your posts again in the future. :-)

Hey, you sure got a nice blog here with some very interesting stuff. I've already put a bookmark on it.

It's a pity I spend so much time blog-surfing that I often forget my own. Silly me. :) But its so addictive.

Anyway, a lot of people are trying to make cash online nowadays, so I thought I'd help you out with a site that has some great tools.

Not bad to sit around doing nothing while your bank balance keeps growing. :)
