Italian Tomato Sauce


One 28-oz jar tomatoes crushed

Two 6-oz jars tomato paste

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/8 tsp. black pepper

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

1 1/2 cups mushrooms, sliced (optional)

Fry onion and garlic in oil about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and tomato paste to onion and garlic. Add all other ingredients except mushrooms and simmer, covered, about 4 hours. Stir often to prevent scorching. If using mushrooms, add during the last 20 minutes of cooking.
