If you know me at all, you know I love to cook. Mostly out of necessity is how I started to learn to cook. My mom was a huge cook, my step-mom is a huge cook, and both of them have influenced me greatly to try new things.

Mostly I try to stick to chicken and fish, or try to stick to as much vegetarian as I can, but I can’t help but love those comfort foods that my family made me growing up.

So today, because it’s been so cold outside, I’m going to make my step-mom’s recipe that she gave me for homemade spaghetti sauce.

It’s SO GOOD! Let’s go:

    Now add your cans of crushed tomatoes, petite diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Stir to combine.

  • Step 7 - Season Up!

    Then add your Italian seasoning and oregano. Heat through.

  • Step 8 - Tomato Paste Time

    Now add your tomato paste and stir to combine.

  • Step 9 - Sugar and Salt and All Things Nice

    Once mixed through, add salt, sugar, and crushed red pepper to taste.

  • Step 10 - Boil and Simmer

    Bring to a low boil, then cover with a lid and let simmer on low-med heat for a few hours, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 11 - Serve With Pasta and Enjoy!
