• 3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped

  • 4 cup fresh tomato puree (fresh plum tomatoes, skinned and put through a food mill)
  • 1 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 ground beef or turkey

Brown meats, onion and garlic in olive oil, pour off extra fats (there isn’t any if you used turkey or chicken). Add tomatoes, and paste, bay leaf and oregano. Simmer for 2 hours. Add basil and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over any pasta.
