Basic Red Sauce

From Fix, Freeze, Feast.  You could buy your own basic marinara, or use this.  It’s cheap, fast and easy to throw together and we have really liked the flavor.

SMALL BATCH
makes about 10 cups

1 (12 ounce) can tomato paste
2 c hot water
2 T dried parsley
2 T minced onion
1 T minced garlic (about 9 cloves)
1 T sugar
2 t salt
1/2 t dried basil (I use more)
1/2 t dried oregano
1/2 t dried thyme
1 (28 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes

LARGE BATCH
makes about 40 cups, or 10 quarts, or 2 1/2 gallons
4 (12 ounce) cans tomato paste
8 cups hot water
1/2 cup dried parsley
1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced garlic
1/4 cup sugar
2 T salt
2 T dried basil
2 T dried oregano
2 t dried thyme
4 (28 ounce) cans tomato sauce
4 (28 ounce) cans diced tomatoes

Mix tomato paste and hot water in a large stockpot until smooth.  Stir in everything else and stir well.  DO NOT cook.  Use in your recipe, or divide into 1 gallon freezer bags for later use.
