Butter Tomato Garlic and Basil Sauce
"This amazing sauce is easy to make and will make any pasta dish the hit of the town! Onions, garlic, tomatoes, fresh basil, a touch of sugar, salt, pepper, 1 bay leaf and of course butter! That’s all it takes to create this super yummy tasty sauce. I have used 2 cans of whole tomatoes that I roughly crushed by hand (you want chunks of tomatoes in there). Fresh basil leaves (straight from my hydroponic garden of course). The idea here is to cook down these tomatoes so the sauce thickens. I have use this sauce to make chicken parmesan with pasta. It is good by itself, over spaghetti or any other pasta like rigatoni, penni, fettuccine. It is a good sauce for meatballs and even meatloaf! Don’t be afraid to use butter in your cooking!"
