Excellent Easy Pasta Sauce

by dawning on / Food and Health

As we all know, sauce out of the jar is not great. There are very simple ways to turn so-so store bought sauce into something really excellent. Here is what I usually do:


  • 2 Jars Classico Tomato & Basil Sauce
  • 14.5 oz. can Ready-cut Tomatoes Diced with Garlic, Oregano & Basil – thoroughly drained
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried Thyme
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Dice the onion while a pot (large enough for all the sauce) is heating on medium 2 tablespoons of Olive oil. Once oil is warm put the onions in. Saute until the onions are clear. Turn down heat to medium low and let the pot cool for a moment, then add garlic. Saute on medium low heat for 2 minutes stirring regularly. Add jars of sauce and the canned tomatoes. Stir. Add brown sugar, thyme, bay leaves, and salt & pepper. Stir. Let the sauce warm completely and serve with your favorite noodles!
