The “All I Want For Christmas” singer is currently vacationing in Aspen, Colorado with her family for the holidays in a sprawling mansion hosted by Airbnb, and while she’s enjoying the much-needed time off, she’s sharing her favorite holiday sauce recipe. While the Mariah’s World star prepares to dine with her family this Christmas, here’s the special sauce she’ll prepare:

Mimi’s “Secret” Sauce

Two 28oz cans of San Marzano tomatoes (crushed)
3 garlic gloves, minced
2 tea spoons of salt
1 tea spoon black pepper
1/4 chopped flat Italian parsley recipe
1/4 olive oil

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-heat.

Add garlic and cook until light golden brown, for about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes and bring to boil, stirring frequently.

Add salt and pepper and lower the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

Stir in the chopped Italian parsley.

Enjoy at Christmas or any time of the year!

Um, yum! Happy eating guys.
