Tomato Sauce for Pasta

2 large Onions Peeled & Chopped
4 Garlic Cloves Minced
2 TBS Olive Oil
2 Large Cans Chopped Tomatoes ( approx. 2lb sized cans)
1 14.5 OZ Can Tomato Sauce
1 TBS Italian Seasoning
1 TBS Parsley Chopped (Fresh is Best but dried ok)
Sugar to taste
Any or all of the following as you choose
1 Green Pepper Chopped
1 Cup Sliced Fresh Mushrooms
1 lb Ground Beef
1 Cup 1/2 & 1/2 Cream

Saute all the vegetables, except your canned tomatoes, in the oil until they are  of soft. IF using beef saute that with the veggies & drain then put back into the pot. Now add all the following ingredients EXCEPT the sugar & the cream, DO NOT drain the tomatoes. Cook & stir over medium low until you have a nice thick sauce. Stir every 10 to 15 minutes do NOT let this stick on  the bottom of the pan. You may do the cooking over medium low in the crock-pot. On the stove top cook at least 2 hours in the crock-pot cook about 6 hours. Once nice & thick taste & add sugar to suit add a tablespoon stir & taste until you get it right! Now stir in the cream if you want a creamy tomato gravy. I switch this up all the time adding veggies or not using meat. The cream gives this sauce a whole other flavor from the norm & I use that for a more elegant sauce. I am not a huge fan of salt or pepper but if you like than add that as well! Have fun playing with this sauce it is practically fool proof! Just do not let it scorch or it will be ruined!
