Homemade Spaghetti Sauce


I found this recipe in Erin Chase's $5 Dinner Cookbook and have been using it for the past year or so. Today I was making lasagna for dinner and decided to make the sauce for it.

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
$5 Dinners

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1 - 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes or 2 - 14.5 oz can of crushed tomatoes

  • 2 tsp. or to taste Italian seasoning

  • 2 Tbsp. of olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp. beef granules

  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic


  1. Place all the ingredients in a sauce pan.

  2. Bring up to a rolling boil. (You don't want a full boil because you don't want spaghetti sauce everywhere.)

  3. Simmer for about 15 minutes.

  4. Serve over your favorite pasta.

Note: You may add 1 Tbsp. of white sugar or a shredded carrot to cut back on the acidity of the tomatoes or to add sweetness to the sauce.
