For the next few Fridays, I thought I would share some "Fill the Freezer" recipes every Friday. I got this set of recipes from my friend, Karen (yes, Kristie, I still have your copies). Please share YOUR freezer meals with us, too. If you have something that your usually double and freeze, let us know. I know we are all looking for a good, easy meal.
This recipe will make around 2 gallons of sauce. You could work with a friend and split it ;or if you have freezer room, you could make it all.
6 medium onions finely chopped
12 cloves garlic, finely chopped
6 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes
5 cups water
54 oz tomato paste or 9 6 oz cans
18 oz canned sliced mushrooms
1/3 cups sugar (or to taste)
2 1/2 T oregano
1 T salt
1 1/2 T basil
6 bay leaves
2 tsp ground pepper
2 cups red wine
Saute onions and garlic until soft on medium heat. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low for 3 hours. Don't forget to use large pots!
You will use this same recipe for future recipes: spaghetti and meatballs, cavatini, chicken parmesan.
