Quick Red Sauce for Greek Meatballs

  • Author: Ashley @ Sweetpea Lifestyle

Description

Use this red sauce anytime you need marinara! It’s a great pizza sauce, too!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • “splash” of red wine
  • 1/21 tablespoon of sugar

Instructions

  1. In an oven proof pot (like Le Crueset!) saute onions until soft in olive oil over medium low heat.
  2. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Pour in jarred marinara, red wine (and by splash, I mean a good glug of the bottle…!), and 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. The sugar helps cut the acidic flavor of the wine and sauce. Add more if needed, but only in small amounts.
  4. Once the sauce is warm, add your meatballs in and cook, covered, for 15 minutes

Notes

  • On the last few minutes, add provolone and mozzarella cheese, and broil until golden brown and bubbly!
