Homemade Pasta Sauce

Spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli…..all of these things end up on the family menu regularly.    A few months ago I went to make dinner and didn’t have a jar of spaghetti sauce in the pantry.  So, I decided to experiment and made my own.  I have tweaked it a few times and landed on this recipe.  Delicious!  It only takes about 5 minutes to throw it together and I always have the ingredients on hand!  (I have been growing a tomato garden this year and I can not wait to make this with my fresh tomatoes!!!!)

 

Here is what you need:

1    6 ounce can of tomato paste

2   8 ounce cans of tomato sauce

4-6 ounces of water (Depending on what you are making.  Lasagna needs a wetter sauce)

2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1 tablespoon Onion Powder (You can substitute for chopped onion!)

1 teaspoon Pepper

1 tablespoon Oil
