EAT | Red Sauce

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.

That’s it!

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.
