Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce

Cooking is something I do every single day and I am guessing you do too ;). Whether you enjoy your time in the kitchen or not, when you have a family waiting with rumbling bellies, you MUST make something….NOW! One of my go-to dinners for as long as I can remember is the tried-and-true Spaghetti dinner. Now sometimes I do mix it up and include a different type of sauce or meat, but in general my spaghetti has remained the same for the last several years. {{boring}} I typically purchase an organic pre-made pasta sauce in a glass jar, boil some water and put in some sort of pasta to pair with the sauce. That is, until now. You see I didn’t realize homemade pasta sauce could be so easy to make and so delicious!

Okay let me tell you about this sauce. Oh my!

First, the best part: 5 Ingredients (and all the moms shouted, “Hallelujah! I have all the ingredients right here..right now!”)

Easy and Delicious Homemade Pasta Sauce

 

Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce

2 lbs. of fresh tomatoes or canned whole peeled tomatoes in their juice
5 TBS butter
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 medium sweet yellow onion
1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (for topping dish)

Now of course you can top pasta with this sauce like rigatoni, but I am going to be using it for all of my tomato based dishes! Try it on chicken, vegetables, pizza or with meatballs. The sauce is so bright and delicious, rich in flavor.

This recipe was featured in a class from Craftsy, Classic Italian Pasta Sauces, Meat and Tomato class from award-winning Italian cooking expert, Giuliano Hazan. Craftsy is basically the hub for DIY, Cooking and Crafting classes. They have such fantastic and professional instructors. Here is a little bit about Giuliano:

“Giuliano Hazan, the only son of Marcella Hazan, followed his mother’s legendary footsteps to become one of today’s foremost authorities on Italian cooking. After studying at Marcella’s celebrated School of Classic Italian Cooking, Giuliano authored the international bestseller The Classic Pasta Cookbook, which was nominated for a James Beard Award and lauded by the New York Times as “just about everything you want to know about pasta and how to prepare it from the Italian perspective.” Renowned for his mastery of the simple, genuine flavors of Italian cuisine, Giuliano continues to thrill the culinary world with his engaging presence and undeniable talent. In 2000, he and his wife founded an acclaimed seven day food and wine course in Valpolicella, Italy, and in 2007, he received the coveted “Cooking Teacher of the Year” Award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals. A popular guest on the Today Show, Giuliano teaches throughout the world, sharing his passion for the delicious, authentic flavors of Italian cuisine.” 

The Classic Italian Pasta Sauces class from Giuliano includes all of these fabulous recipes:

Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce OR Mother’s Butter, Tomato and Onion Pasta Sauce (get the FREE recipe here)
Spaghetti al Pomodoro e Basilico OR Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato, Olive Oil, Garlic & Basil
Pasta Carbonara
Puttanesca OR Tomatoes, Capers, Olives and Anchovies
Bolognese Meat Sauce
Ragù Marchigiano
Bucatini all’Amatriciana OR Spicy Tomato Sauce with Pancetta
Spaghetti alla Checca OR Spaghetti with Raw Tomatoes, Herbs and Mozzarella
Spaghetti al Sugo Crudo di Peperoni OR Spaghetti With Raw Peppers and Tomato

Like I have said over and over again, one of the best things about Craftsy classes online, besides the valuable information, is the ability to start the class and pause the class whenever I need to. When the kids are in bed, or when I have a few minutes during the day to spare, I can sit down and watch a bit of the course in the comfort of my own home. It is so convenient! Craftsy is the perfect solution for us busy moms who want to learn, but don’t have time to leave the house and attend a class.

Here is a little more info about Craftsy:

Craftsy offers online crafting classes, taught by world renowned instructors who love the craft as much as you do. Craftsy classes are online, so they are available to you anytime you want for as long as you want, there are no scheduled class times, so you can enjoy them entirely on your own schedule. Each class is taught by an acclaimed instructor and consists of several hours of HD-quality video content… but Craftsy classes are much more than just a video!

While taking a Craftsy class, you can:

Ask your instructor questions, upload photos, and get personalized responses

Participate in discussions with your classmates

Access supporting class materials – including recipes and helpful tips & tricks

Bookmark your favorite moments in the video so that you can easily re-watch them and take notes that you can refer back to anytime

The great thing about Craftsy is that there is a class for everyone! You can learn knitting, photography, cake decorating, sewing, cooking and more!

Hope you enjoy that pasta sauce friends!!
