Just gotta throw everything together in a pot & BAMMM!
I always find myself learning how to make something that I usually buy at the store that is seriously easy, cheaper and better to make homemade. This spaghetti sauce is one of them! I feel so accomplished when I make something homemade. Do you?
This is a -No Fail- recipe
Seriously though, if you are new to cooking and want to save money in the kitchen, start here! Dude, you get SO MUCH SAUCE! My Husband loves to drench his noodles with spaghetti sauce. Like, do you want some noodles with that sauce?!! Me. I like balance. I like to taste the noodles and the flavors of the sauce together.

I enjoy being able to customize my own food. It’s so much fun trying different varieties of one recipe. Not only can you customize the taste of this sauce but you can also use this sauce for almost anything! You just gotta get creative and give different recipes a try. You can add this sauce on top of a parmesan cheese bagel with some mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top like I did in the picture below. Mmmm Mmm Mmmm so yummy and easy! You can cook this sauce with chicken, noodles, veggie noodles or pizza. Options are endless. Go give it a try!
Italian seasoning that I used in the sauce
I usually don’t put meat in the sauce but this last time I did and it came out good! All I did differently was cook the meat first then go on with the OG recipe. I used turkey meat & made a double batch in the pictures above. I froze the leftovers and gave my mother in law two jars. There was still A LOT left. It’s awesome how much this recipe makes!
This recipe is easy, fast and useful for so many different recipes.
- 1 28 oz. Can Diced Tomatoes
- 2 12 oz. Can Tomato Paste

- Fiesta Brand Gourmet Italian Choice Seasoning Go with your taste buds.

Get your medium pot on the stove with some canola oil over medium heat.
Once your pot is nice and warm go ahead and add your onions and cook until translucent.
Make sure not to burn your onions. Once they are clear you can add your Diced tomatoes and Tomato paste and mix together.
Go ahead and add some water to get the sauce at the consistency you would like.
When it is to your liking you can add your seasonings to taste. I go by my taste buds. I don't like to measure out when I'm cooking (:
Let it get nice and bubbly & There you have it! You can do so much with this sauce and add whatever your heart desires. You can freeze the leftovers once it is cooled down. From the freezer, you can pop it in a pot or in the microwave to warm it up.
