When I moved out of the house at eighteen I was broke, as most 18-20 somethings are when they’re first getting set up on their own. Among eating canned ravioli and a LOT of ramen noodles, I learned how to make the easiest, cheapest, tastiest red sauce. To this day this is still my go-to-sauce for pasta, chicken parmesan, marinara dipping sauce, pizza sauce, etc.. You can add diced tomatoes, mushrooms, meat, and other seasonings to perfect your own but here’s my original recipe!
1 (15oz) can of tomato sauce
1 (6oz) can of tomato paste
1 Tbs Italian seasoning
½ Tbs garlic salt
½ tsp onion powder
I also like to add a pinch of red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper for some kick!
Ready for the easiest cooking instructions you’ll ever see?!
Combine all ingredients into a small sauce pan, heat on medium heat, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until desired temperature.
You can always add sautéed tomatoes and mushrooms or cooked Italian sausage for a heartier sauce!
