Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Spaghetti is one of my favorite meals, but jarred spaghetti sauce always is so runny to me. I prefer my sauce to be thicker. So, the other night, we decided to make our own sauce. It turned out great!

We started by chopping up one clove and half a jumbo onion and then sauteing in canola oil.

Then, we added two cans of crushed tomatoes, one small can of tomato paste, and sprinkled in basil, thyme, crushed red pepper flakes and oregano.

Once we stirred everything together, we let it cook for about 15 minutes on medium heat. It turned out SO yummy and was MUCH thicker than jarred sauces.

Although I usually only pennies for premade sauce, I do prefer this kind. I honestly don’t know why I don’t just make this every time we have spaghetti now!
