Growing up, Saturday afternoons were spent at my grandparents’ house where the entire family gathered for a hearty meal, lots of laughs, and much love. It was not uncommon that at least one of the dishes served was macaroni and gravy. Yes, we call it gravy in my family. I am pleased to share a recipe that has been passed down for generations and is included in many fond memories. You might notice there are no measurements for the ingredients- Gram never used them. Let your palate be your guide. Mangia!
Sprinkle Olive Oil
Dash Chopped Garlic
Dash Chopped Onion
Dash Chopped Basil
Dash Chopped Oregano
Sprinkle of Black Pepper
Sprinkle of Red Pepper
Splash of Wine
A Couple Bay Leaves
Box, can, or freshly crushed Tomatoes
In a stove top cooking apparatus, heat olive oil. Lower heat to a simmer. Add garlic and onion. Stir occasionally. Add chopped basil and oregano. Once garlic and onion are slightly browned add crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, red pepper, black pepper, and wine. Stir occasionally and simmer for at least twelve minutes. The longer the gravy simmers, the more flavorful it gets- just be sure to keep stirring!
