2tb of Tomato paste
1lb of Ground Meat
½ cup of Red Wine
1 Large can of Whole Chef Tomatoes
1 Can of tomato sauce
1tb Of fresh Basil
1tb of fresh Parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
1tb of EVOO
Sauté onion, garlic and bell pepper. Add ground meat and cook down until meat is brown. Next, add the tomato paste. Reduce the paste for 2-3 minutes (this takes out some of the acidity). Add the wine and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Add tomatoes and crush them with your hands in the pot. Finally, add tomato sauce, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook for 15-20 minutes. Serve over your favorite pasta.
