Spanish Sauce RecipeThe Spanish sauce is a spicy tomato sauce made with sautéed onions, green peppers, mushrooms and garlic.
NOTE: This recipe calls for 1 quart of the classic tomato sauce, which is one of the five so-called mother sauces of the culinary arts. You could instead use 1 quart of basic tomato pasta sauce, which is easier to make.
