Homemade Cacciatora Sauce from Scratch

Homemade Cacciatore Sauce from Scratch

My mouth is watering just thinking about my homemade cacciatora sauce from scratch. You may know it as cacciatore sauce.

Wonderful with chicken and homemade Italian bread; to soak up the juice, of course.  Offering many homemade Italian recipes for you to call your own.

Best Homemade Cacciatora Sauce


4 TBS oil
medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 green bell peppers, seeded and slivered
1 can (28 oz) plum tomatoes**
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced

1/4 cup white wine
1 TBS parsley, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder

Heat oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onions, onion powder, minced garlic, garlic powder and green peppers. Stir often and saute until the onions are translucent.

Raise heat to medium-high and add tomatoes, crushing them in your hand as you add them - including the juice. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours. Stir occasionally. Makes 4 cups.

This sauce is delicious over pasta and chicken cooked in this sauce is outstanding (chicken cacciatore).

**To use fresh Roma tomatoes, you will need between 8 to 12 per 28 ounce can. If you will use Beefsteak or another large tomato variety, you could probably get away with between 4 to 6, again, depending on how large they are.
