Grandma Rosa's Spaghetti Sauce

My great-grandma Rosa was the oldest of nine children born in Tuscany, Italy. This is the recipe the family brought from Italy. I have written it below to make as a gift for Christmas. If making it for yourself at home, I would substitute real garlic for powdered. If you'd like, you can also substitute 1 T fresh parsely for the dried for more flavor.

In a ziplock bag, put the following spices:
2 1/2 teaspoons basil
2 teaspoons parsely
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sugar

Copy and paste the following, print out on card stock and attach to the baggie:

In a large pot, combine:
1 spice packet
2 - 12 oz. cans tomato paste
2 - 29 oz. cans tomato sauce
4 - 12 oz. cans water
1 large whole onion
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional) or 1 dried cayenne pepper

Simmer for about two hours or until desired thickness achieved. Remove onion. Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles with meatballs.
