Why Cookie? Because she's Cookie the cook, and her friends are Drunkie the drunk, Studdie the stud, and DJ-ee the DJ.
She thinks she's an Italian-American socialite.
Any good Italian-American Sunday dinner needs good bread, red wine, and a nice homemade marinara sauce.
1/4 cup olive oil
2-3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 15oz cans diced tomatoes
2 15oz cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup red wine
Up to 1 Tbsp crushed red pepper, optional
Heat the oil in a large pot. Sweat the garlic and onion. Add remaining ingredients and simmer uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally and breaking up the tomatoes with a wooden spoon.
