This blog will be written by a stay at home mom/student. I am trying to enjoy every minute of life I get and raise my children to be happy with what we have been given. Anything written here will be by me, for my well being and piece of mind. I want to open other peoples eyes, and let them see that we can make it on less.

Helen's real italian pizza sauce.

This recipe was given to me by a lady named Margret that works at the Troutville Thriftway. I had told her one day that I love homemade pizza better than store bought because it tasted better and was healthier. The next time I went in she had made me a copy of this recipe, that was shared with her years before by a friend in her church. It's the little things like this that really makes you appreciate friendships. Just the fact that she took the time and made the effort to share a recipe makes me smile, and makes me want to pass it on.

3 TBSP olive oil or mazola oil
4 cups tomato juice
1 can tomato paste (6oz)
1 cup water
1/2 tsp minced onion
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp minced garlic

Bring all liquid ingredients to a boil then add all dry ingredients. Boil over medium heat until thick. Around 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally. Add 2 TBSP parmesan cheese and boil 10 minutes longer.
