Hello! You guys love pasta right? Pasta is one of my favorite things to eat, and I make pasta dishes all the time for my family. My girls love anything with marinara or “red sauce”, and I have the easiest, most delicious recipe that blows jarred sauce out of the water.
This sauce uses canned tomatoes, and I find that when you’re making red sauce, you need the canned tomatoes. Using fresh tomatoes also makes a great sauce (like for a pomodoro sauce), but the canned tomatoes give it a thickness that you can’t get from using fresh.
Here is the recipe!
What you’ll need:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 6 or 7 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 can crushed tomatoes
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp oregano
In a large saucepan, heat up your olive oil.
Add in your garlic cloves, and sauté just until fragrant.
Pour in your crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce.
Bring to a boil, and add the salt and oregano.
I usually add ground beef to this sauce, but it is also very good without.
I usually put a lid on and simmer this sauce for about 30 min.
I use this sauce for lasagna, spaghetti, baked ziti, etc. It goes with any pasta.
This night I just boiled some elbow macaroni, mixed it up with the sauce, topped it with some mozzarella, and baked it for a quick meal.
