A.J. Cunningham's "because I like it smooth" Spaghetti Sauce!


2 TBS. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 Heaping TBS. Dried Chopped Onions
Dash or 2 of Crushed Red Pepper
1 tsp. Onion Powder
Salt, Pepper & Sugar to taste ( I used about 3 TBS. sugar & left out salt & pepper) do what suits you.
1 TBS Parsley Flakes
1 12 oz. Can Tomato Paste
1 29 oz. Can Tomato Sauce
1 15 oz. Can Italian Herb Tomato Sauce, ( I used Contadina for all my cans )

In my large dutch oven I put in the olive oil in with garlic & cooked over low until garlic  was soft. I then dumped in all my cans & then all the seasoning except the sugar. Cook over medium stirring often. After about 1 hour I tasted & then started adding sugar a little at time stirring & tasting until I had it where I wanted it to be. DELICIOSO !!!! I let this simmer on very low for another 2 hours. I think you could easily mix this up the night before, place in a crockpot in the morning on low & let it turn into magic while you go about your day. At first it took all I had to NOT add chopped onions, chunky tomatoes, mushrooms & peppers but I really wanted to try A. J.'s special sauce that people at work were RAVING about. So I refrained & SO GLAD I DID! This sauce is just AMAZING! It is so thick unbelievably thick & loaded with flavor! It also makes a big pot so you can have it again & with time I think the flavor can only be over the top! I still LOVE my chunky thick sauce but this sauce is so different from what I normally make & it is a wonderful change! A.J.'s sauce just SCREAMS for you to dip in a chunk of crusty bread & taste it & you bet I answered it's call!  I served this over spaghetti ( multi grain) & with the meatballs from my Bangin' Balls recipe February 2011 on this blog. I am sure you will find many other uses for A.J.'s masterpiece sauce ! THANK YOU FOR SHARING A.J.!
