A scrumptious & easy pasta sauce with lot of earthy big flavor – make a big batch!


  • 1 Green Pepper

  • 5 Stalks Celery

  • 24 Small Brown Mushrooms

  • 4 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 4 Cloves Garlic

  • 4 Bay leaves

  • 1 tsp. Oregano

  • 1 tsp. Basil

  • 1 tsp. Thyme

  • 1 tsp. Rosemary

  • 1 tsp Fennel Seed

  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt

  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper

  • 64 oz. Cento San Marzano Organic Crushed Plum Tomatoes

  • 1 lb. Ground Organic Chicken


  • Chop Green Pepper, Celery stalks, and Brown Mushrooms.
  • Heat Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large pot.
  • Add chopped vegetables into pot to sauté until mushrooms loose their firmness.
  • Crush Garlic cloves and add to pot.
  • Add Bay leaves, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Rosemary, Fennel seed, Salt and Pepper to pot and stir well to incorporate.
  • Stir in Cento San Marzano Organic Peeled Tomatoes (break them up with your hand).
  • Reduce heat, cover partially (to let it breath a little) and let simmer.
  • In skillet pan, brown Organic Ground Chicken. Once browned, drain any potential fat and add chicken to the pot.
  • Allow pot to simmer for 2 hours.
  • You use what you need and put the rest in containers for the refrigerator or freezer.


  • Cento San Marzano Organic Peeled Tomatoes are the BEST I have ever found – for taste as well as the Nutrition Facts Label. They are pretty common in stores but Trader Joes or Staters always has them.
