Directions:
Cover the bottom of a sauce pot with olive oil (3-4 turns or so around bottom of pan) and saute garlic slightly. Add tomatoes, paste, water, basil and salt and stir. Bring ingredients to a slight boil and lower heat to a simmer. Simmer sauce for about 2 - 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

If adding meatballs (see recipe), add them after the sauce has been reduced to simmer.

If adding pork, chicken, sausage, meatballs, braccioli, etc...prepare them by browning them in olive oil first then add to sauce.

Personal Notes:
The aromas from this sauce will surely send you to the kitchen so you can dip some good italian bread, just for a taste. (THAT....is personally one of my pet peeves, so I just turn my head or chase Matt out .... kidding.....I use to chase him out, but now he is my official taster, due to he can make "sauce" better than me and he adjusts the ingredients for me.... thanks Matt :)
