Easy Pasta Sauce Recipe

Easy Pasta Sauce Recipe

While I am not above ready to go pasta sauce from a jar or can to top my pasta. Sometimes I want a more complex homemade flavor, but I do not want to spend hours cooking down fresh tomatoes. This is my compromise, it definitely  tastes fresher than the jar but can be ready in as little as 20 minutes (but the longer you cook it the more the flavors blend and develop). This easy pasta sauce recipe is simple to make from items that are probably already sitting in your pantry.  Making a meal without meat also makes for a frugal dish as well.

Ingredients:

2-1 4 oz. cans of diced tomatoes (garlic, basil flavored is best)

4 Tbsp. olive oil

2 cloves crushed garlic

1/2 cup grated parmesan

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

easy pasta sauce recipe

Directions:

Lightly brown garlic with olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Stir in diced tomatoes, grated Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning.

easy pasta sauce recipe

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20-45 minutes.

If you want your sauce smoother you can puree it until desired  consistency is reached in a blender, processor, or with an immersion blender.

Remember to vent the blender when using hot liquids or you will have a kitchen  covered in red sauce and some significant burns.

Serve over your favorite pasta.
