  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat and add garlic and basil.
  • Saute until the garlic starts to release smell and add your tomato products, water, parsley, and pepper.
  • Stir until the paste dissolves completely. If it still looks a little thick, add a little more water (while cooking, the sauce will thicken and reduce further).
  • Add your par-cooked meat and stir well; making sure it is all submerged. Lower heat to very low and simmer 4 hours; stirring every 15-20  minutes so that nothing sticks to the bottom and burns your sauce.
  • Serve with cooked pasta prepared according to package directions.
