How to Make Your Own Pasta Sauce

1 Feb

Admittedly, the pasta sauce recipe that follows is not from scratch. However, many of us don’t have time to crush tomatoes, so here it is:

2 15 oz cans plain pasta sauce (I use Hunt’s 100% Natural Sauce)

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp onion powder

2 bay leaves

1 Tbsp basil

1 Tbsp parsley

1 Tbsp Italian seasoning

½ c. grated Parmesan cheese

1 c. chopped green peppers

Place all ingredients except chopped green peppers into a medium sauce pan. Let sauce simmer on medium for twenty minutes, stirring occasionally. Add any precooked meats to the sauce after twenty minutes. Allow the sauce to simmer with the meat for ten minutes. Add the chopped peppers, simmer an additional five minutes. Add to pasta and serve.

We often use precooked meatballs in our pasta; we fry them gently on medium heat in a small frying pan of olive oil. The olive oil coating adds extra flavor to the sauce.

Please add variations and alternative meat ideas below!
