Chelsea's Pasta Sauce

Background: I threw this together one night to make a quick sauce for my daughter. I don't measure anything but will give approximate measurements. This has become one of her favorite dishes.


14 oz can of chopped tomatoes with sauce. You can use any brand and I often use chopped tomatoes with added Italian seasoning. I have even substituted a 14 oz can of stewed tomatoes when that was all I had.

Olive oil (1/4 cup)
Sugar (1 tablespoon)
Salt ( 1 teaspoon)
Burgundy (1/2 cup)
Garlic (3-4 cloves) sliced
Italian seasonings (dry) (1 teaspoon)


Drizzle olive oil into a sauce pan and heat over medium heat.
Slice garlic and add to olive oil. Simmer for a minute or so.
Open can of tomatoes and add to the sauce pan.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.

Serve with bow tie pasta (Chelsea's favorite)
