15 Minute Homemade Pasta Sauce!

This is the quickest, most delicious red sauce you can make in minutes. Really the hardest part is the prep work which is minimal. Its my fav way to use up garden tomatoes in the summer but can even be done with either strained or diced tomatoes (I don't recommend the type with seasoning as its so much nicer to add your own.)

Simply chop an onion roughly, some garlic to taste and saute in some olive oil.
Once the onions and garlic are nice and soft, add a can of strained tomatoes and a can of diced tomatoes. If you have fresh even better, just chop them up nice and chunky and dump in the saute pan.
The key to getting the sauce thick without cooking for hours on end is using a saute pan without a lid. You'd be amazed at how quickly your sauce will be nice and thick!

This is the sauce as its cooking.
While this is cooking down, boil your pasta.
Add some seasoning to the sauce to taste. I happen to love loads of basil, but a pinch of salt brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes. Be careful not too much though!
Once your pasta is done cooking your sauce will be ready.
Add to pasta and enjoy delicious homemade pasta sauce!

And here's the finished product -- molto deliziosa! And super quick!




  1. Now that you are talking about homemade pasta it reminds me of my trip to Argentina since one of the best things they have is food. It is a country of red meat and a lot of spaghetti. When I took the ARGENTINA TOURS I noticed that food is essential to get along with them.
