This is mom’s secret sunday spaghetti sauce recipe. Make sure you have an italian bread handy so when you are making it you can dip the bread in the sauce as it is cooking and before you know it you are out of italian bread. lol
Three or four large cans of whole plum tomatoes, one 12 ounce bag of sun-dried tomatoes, one head of garlic, one large onion, dried basil, dried oregano, one bottle of red wine (one that you drink) sea salt, coarse black pepper, hot pepper flakes, olive oil,.light brown sugar.
You chop garlic into small pieces and cut up your onion into small pieces as well, add 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil to pot and turn up heat to medium.
Add onions garlic one teaspoon of oregano and one teaspoon of dried basil and one teaspoon of hot pepper flakes and a dash of black pepper, now stir well.
When onions turn translucent then you add one cup of wine and 2 teaspoons of sugar and a dash of salt lower heat and stir well. (sometimes I am feeling a little nutty and add a half of bottle of wine) lol
Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes

Boil a big pot of water with sea salt and add your pasta and cook until al dente.
Add your sauce on top and grate some Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and you have ma’s secret Sunday sauce and if she finds out that I posted her recipe I’m in big big trouble..lol
