This Amazing Pasta Sauce is simple and so good! This recipe proves that food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious! I use this sauce on pastas, chicken, zucchini noodles and as a pizza sauce for my picky eater so it gets the stamp of approval for picky eaters too! I like to double the batch so I can freeze some and have it ready for when we are starving between baseball and soccer practices and have no time to cook! At least I know there is something in the fridge everyone will eat!
Amazing Pasta Sauce Ingredients
2 Tbsp oil
1/2 onion or 1 small onion ( I use a small finely chopped for the picky eater)
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh basil
2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh oregano
1/2 Tsp salt (or salt to taste)
1/4 cup sugar
Heat the oil in a 4 to 6 quart pot over medium low heat. Add the onion and cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. (If necessary, adjust the heat to avoid browning.) Add the garlic and cook for a couple minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, sugar and tomato paste, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil, parsley, oregano and salt.
Use immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 week. You can also freeze sauce for up to 2 months (maybe more but I don’t know the rules on that.)
