Italian Tomato Sauce
This is an excellent base recipe. Usable as is, the fennel and other spices create an easy base sauce recipe. Scalable AND flexible this recipe is the base for many of my "season" sauces. Add sliced mushrooms, diced peppers and olives, or even create your own arrabiata sauce with a bit of pepper flakes. Adding your own fresh tomatoes also creates a "fresh" taste. I frequently will add a bit of hamburger or meatballs when I serve over pasta. For a special taste try adding a few slices of fresh basil over the sauce - heavenly aroma and gives it that special home made look and smell.
