Spagetti Sauce

Since my family tried my “almost homemade” spagetti sauce and no one hated it, I am confident in posting it as my first recipe.  This is actually a combination of things I heard, read, or was told and I very well could have read it somewhere, but as far as I remember, it is original.

The origins of this recipe are from the facts that I hate spagetti and I hate jarred sauce even more.  I hate it for its cheapness and whenever I was out of money in college, I always ate spagetti.  Nonetheless, its a decent meal when you want something fast, so I decided to at least try to make it taste better.  Enough rambling:

This feeds about 2-3 people:

  • 1/2 Jar of Bertolli Marinara Sauce (or whatever brand you want)
  • 8 oz can of Tomato Sauce
  • Dried Basil
  • Dried Oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon of Sugar

Mix in the Sauces in a pot over medium heat.  Sprinkle the sauce with the dried basil and oregano.  I never measure how much I use, I will say I generally cover the top of the sauce.  Call it 1/2 Tablespoon of each.  Add the sugar and stir it all together.  I add a tiny bit of salt (its a flavor enhancer) and some ground black pepper.  Mix until warm.

There you have it, easy as it gets.  It is obviously a sweet sauce, so just an FYI.
