Moe’s Awesome Aussie Sauce

Here’s a recipe that will go down in history as one of the easiest and quite possibly the tastiest.
I got this from Moe when she and Mark were staying here at the house last July.
I am making this tomorrow and have grown tired of trying to find the recipe. [found it!]
The girls love it so I post it for them tonight.
It’s so easy and incredibly delicious.
As far as the post photo goes, it’s Giada.
She’s Italian.
She cooks good.
She looks good.
Nuff said.
You should have seen the picture I originally wanted to put up.
Hey, she’s a babe, okay?
Anywhoo . . .

You will need:

8 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
3 large onions, chopped finely [have fun. chew gum. less tears, truth.]
As much salami/ sandwich pepperoni as you want
(I usually buy a 1-1 1/2 lb chunk of the stuff)
3 large tins crushed tomatoes OR 12 fresh beefeater tomatoes
Chili flake to taste
2 cups red wine/port (or 1&1)
2 tablespoons white sugar

Do this:

Sweat the onions and garlic until onion is transparent
Add chopped up salami/pepperoni and chili flake.
Once combined and cooked through, add the tomatoes, wine and sugar.
Simmer until reduced and sauce is thick.
I’m thinking about 2-3 hours, depending on how thick you want your sauce.
Pour over pasta of your choice.
Serve with fresh grated Parmesan or Romano, garlic bread and a nice fresh garden salad.


ps. my epicurean thanks to Moe for the Italian inspiration from Oz!
