Mom’s Sauce


  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cans tomato puree
  • 2 cans crushed tomatoes in puree
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried, crushed oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried, crushed basil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Any piece of pork with or without bone
  • Italian Sausage
  • Meatballs


  • In a large pot, saute garlic in olive oil taking care not to burn.
  • Add pork and sausage and cook for a few minutes to get a bit of brown on it.
  • Add canned tomatoes – rinse cans with water and add the water to the pot to try to achieve a good texture.
  • Add bay leaves, salt, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and sugar.

NOTE: You can change the texture of the sauce, making it smoother, by replacing crushed tomatoes with puree.
