Ingredients

  • 2 bay leafs (– Garlic powder – Salt/Pepper)
  • fresh parsley (This is Important!! It MUST be fresh parsley!)

  • 5 cloves garlic (Must be fresh chopped)
  • cajun seasoning (Just a dash. I recommend Tony’s Chachere’s. Is this Italian? No, but it does add a nice kick to the sauce. You can also add crushed red pepper flakes if you want some extra heat.)

  • 6 ounces tomato paste (cans of)
  • 14 1/2 ounces diced tomatoes (cans of)
