Homemade Spaghetti Sauce On Valentines Day

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce On Valentines Day

There's more than one way to show your Valentine you love them, but what's better than a home cooked meal?  The aroma of a freshly made spaghetti sauce will fill your kitchen with love and your special someone will be thrilled you took the time to make them a homemade meal. This recipe has been passed down from my Italian grandmother and brings me so much joy to make for my own little family now.  I hope you all enjoy it!

Reminder: There is room to be creative and add your own proteins or veggies. I use fresh tomatoes but feel free to use canned. Just remember if you use fresh tomatoes they will need longer to reduce (about 2 hours). If you don't have time to wait canned tomato will do the trick!

  • 5 lbs fresh tomatoes peeled and seeded (Or four 15 oz cans of stewed, crushed or whole tomato)

  • 1 can of tomato paste

  • 2 medium onions diced

  • 8 cloves  garlic minced

  • 1 can chicken stock

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1/3 cup fresh basil finely chopped

  • 1 sprig fresh thyme leaves or ½ tsp dried thyme

  • 1 sprig fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 2 sprigs fresh parsley or 1 tsp dried parsley

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp white sugar (optional)

Pasta Sauce Instructions:

  • Heat the olive oil in a medium size pot over medium heat. Add onions and saute until soft, about 5 minutes

  • Add garlic and saute another minute.

  • Then, add tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, basil, bay leaves, thyme and salt/pepper.

  • Bring to a boil and immediately reduce to a simmer.

  • Simmer for 10-15 minutes to let flavors meld. (I usually simmer with fresh tomatoes for 3-4 hours for a thicker sauce with a deeper flavor).

  • Serve over pasta of choice, sprinkle shaved parmesan over and enjoy!
