Simple & Sweet Pasta Sauce

This recipe is for those who have pasta & find out last minute that they don’t have their sauce! GASP ! & all you have is a can of tomatoes… or nothing at all. Haha. Well if this hasn’t happen to you.. it happened to me. I was at the time making ravioli. This sauce is great for any kind of pasta: ravioli, spaghetti, etc. It’s affordable & simple. It’s great especially for us college students who don’t want to buy a large container of pasta sauce.

It has just the right amount of sweet and tarte. Enjoy!


Ingredients:

  • 1 can whole tomatoes
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 garlic
  • 1 tomato
  • Dash of thyme
  • Dash of parsley flakes
  • Red Crushed Pepper (optional if you like spicy pasta)
  • OPTIONAL: Ground beef/turkey/pork, sausage, hotdogs

Directions:

  1. Crush & mince the garlic
  2. Dice the onions to your liking
  3. With the olive oil, lightly coat a nonstick pan & turn settings to medium high
  4. Add the garlic and onions. Stir till golden
  5. Add the can of tomatoes (include the chunks of tomatoes and sauce)
  6. Lower stove to medium low and stir
  7. Add the sugar and stir
  8. Add the salt, pepper, thyme, & parsley flakes (optional: add red pepper flakes)
  9. If the tomatoes are whole, mash the tomatoes with a spoon until they are small chunks
  10. Add the additional fresh tomatoes
  11. Dash of pepper and salt
  12. Stir until a boil and then turn off your stove.
  13. Voila! You are done
  14. Optional: If you decided to add any meat into the sauce.. start with step 1-4 and then brown the meat. Afterwards, continue on with step 5.

I bought pre-made ground turkey ravioli which I boiled & then poured the delicious sauce right onto the top.  I added additional pepper, parmesan cheese & parsley flakes.

Enjoy!
