Homemade Pasta Sauce

Thanks to a trade group that I’ve been obsessed with, I’ve managed to obtain a hilarious amount of canned tomatoes in various forms. Whole, crushed, and pureed… Got em all!

So naturally I had to put them to good use so I made myself a lovely homemade pasta sauce with lots to spare for freezing.

The recipe consists of…

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 tsp red bell pepper flakes

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp basil

1 tbsp sugar

4 cloves of minced garlic

1 tbsp dried onion flakes

2 tbsp butter

salt and pepper to taste

1 can diced tomatoes (796ml)

1 can crushed tomatoes (796ml)

1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated

  1. Mix the oil,bell peppers, garlic, onion flakes, butter, sugar and spices in a large pot on medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

  2. Add the cans of tomatoes- simmer for 2 hours.

  3. When it’s finished, add the Parmesan.

This filled 3- 500ml mason jars with ease. REMEMBER to let the sauce cool 100% if you plan to freeze it in a glass jar.
