  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 2 tsp parmesan grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp basil dried
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 cup water


  • In a medium-size pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the minced garlic until golden brown.
  • To the pot, add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, and water to the pot with the minced garlic.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  • Once simmering, place the lid on the pot and turn the heat to a low setting. Allow the sauce to simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • After 30 minutes, remove the pot from the heat and allow to cool slightly before use.
  • If you are saving the sauce for later use, allow the sauce to cool completely before storing.
