Make your Own Healthy Spaghetti Sauce
Make this quick spaghetti sauce instead of opening a store-bought jar filled with salt and preservatives. In 30 minutes, you’ll have a homemade pasta sauce that tastes like it took hours to make.
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 small yellow onion chopped
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
- 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 10 oz whole wheat spaghetti or other multigrain pasta (dry)
- 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is softened.
- Add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 15 minutes. Add parsley and simmer another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling, salted water until just tender. In a colander, drain pasta and return pasta to pot.
- Add 1/4 cup tomato sauce to pasta and toss to coat.
- Transfer pasta to bowls and top with remaining sauce, Parmesan cheese and additional parsley, if desired.
