I was tired of bottled spagetti sauce (too much sugar in it) and homemade takes a bit of time (especially when I'm really hungry) so I came up with this after I ate something similar in a restaurant year and years ago.

How to Make Pasta Sauce

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a saute pan, heat olive oil over medium or low-medium heat.
  • 2Chop or slice the fresh ingredients (any size) using more to serve more people. (As always, make sure guests have no food allergies.)
  • 3While the water for pasta comes to a rolling boil put fresh ingredients in saute pan & stir frequently. "Sauce" is intended to be lightly "cooked" unlike traditional sauces.
  • 4Once pasta is done & on plates, add a pat of butter (optional). Spoon a moderate amount of sauce on the top. Do not mix or stir.
  • 5This recipe is quick, simple and flexible so add or subtract ingredients to express your own creativity. (ideas: mushrooms, oregano, black olives, squash, hot chiles and cheese.)
