Homemade Pasta Sauce over Spaghetti
Christy at Raising Knights
Prepared in Miz Helen's Kitchen
1 (10 oz.) can whole peeled tomatoes, undrained
1 (6 oz.) can tomato pasted ( you could probable use two cans)
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp. oregano
1-2 tsp. sea salt or kosher salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
honey, to taste (I use about 1 tsp to balance out the acidity)
Pour the undrained tomatoes into a large, shallow dutch oven or deep skillet. Heat over medium heat.
Using a potato masher, crush tomatoes until no large chunks remain. Add remaining ingredients.
Bring to a simmer. Simmer on low for several hours or until sauce is reduced and thickened, stirring occasionally. Taste and add more seasoning, if desired.
Christy Recipe Tip:
At This point, I remove half of it and put it in a large jar or gallon size freezer bag to freeze for another meal later. If you sue a jar, fill it leaving a few inches for expansion. With a freezer bag, make sure it's sealed (double-bag), if you afraid it might leak, lay it flat on a cookie sheet and freeze until solid. Then remove cookie sheet and store the sauce horizontal or vertical, your choice. You don't have to use the cookie sheet , but it keeps the bottom of the bag flat instead of sagging through the gaps in the wire racks and the bottom of the bag flat instead of sagging through the gasp in the wire racks and making it a little more difficult to remove from the freezer.
We like meat sauce, so I use ground beef that I precooked with onion and garlic and froze. I add it about 15 -20 minutes before serving and simmer until the sauce and meat are heated through.
Miz Helen's Tip and additions
1 pound ground chuck browned and drained
1 pound ground Italian Sausage browned and drained
1 large yellow onion chopped and browned with the meat.
Season the meat with:
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon sweet basil
1 teaspoon fennel or anise
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Add to the sauce and simmer at least one hour or longer.
Prepare your favorite Spaghetti or Pasta and pour the sauce over the hot pasta.

Enjoy Your Spaghetti!
