Project #193 – Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

I’m picking about 2-3 pounds of tomatoes every day and despite copious bruschetta and tomato sandwich eating, the tomatoes are starting to win the battle. It’s time to bring out the big guns, the big, saucy guns.


  • 1 small onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of peeled, minced garlic
  • 6-8 medium sized tomatoes, minced
  • Salt, pepper, oregano, basil to taste

  1. 1. Fry an onion in about 3 tbsp of olive oil
  2. 2. Add 2 tbsp of minced garlic once tbe onions start to brown
  3. 3. When the garlic starts to brown throw in the minced tomatoes
  4. 4. Add salt and pepper to taste
  5. 5. Let the sauce cook down to the desired thickness, stirring about once every 15 minutes
  6. 6. Add oregano and basil to taste about minutes before the sauce is finished cooking, this keeps the taste from completely cooking out of the leaves.
