A must in every Italian kitchen is a good tomato sauce. With crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, chopped garlic, onion and bell pepper, this one fits the bill. I'm sure you'll be making it over and over again. This homemade spaghetti sauce recipe is sure to become one of those recipes you'll be passing down through the generations. Serve it up with all your favorite pastas, and your whole family will be pleased.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 cans (28 ounces each) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onion, and green pepper and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the onion and pepper are tender, stirring frequently.
     
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, or until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
Notes
  • For added flavor, add 2 teaspoons dried oregano along with the other ingredients. Since this makes a lot of sauce, be sure to refrigerate (for up to 1 week) or freeze any leftovers in airtight containers.
