Prepare the things you would use

- large chopped onion,
- tablespoon of basil,
- tablespoon of oregano,
- teaspoon of salt,
- teaspoon of ground black pepper,
- tablespoon of olive oil,
- huge cooking pot,
- and a cutting board.
Place olive oil in a large pot over low heat. Add your garlic and onions. Stir occasionally.
You may want to wash your hands first before proceeding with the next tasks.
While that is cooking, crush the tomatoes with your hands.
Add this to the pot – the crushed peelings and the juice. Don’t forget to stir in tomato paste.
Now, add your oregano and basil. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
The next thing to do is to make the sauce simmer for an hour over low heat. Stir occasionally.
And that’s it!
Get a large spoonful of the sauce drenched over your cooked noodles, and enjoy!
To make it taste even better, you may add parmesan cheese.
With that simple recipe of making your own homemade spaghetti sauce, it wouldn’t be all that surprising if you would prefer making this instead of digging in your pockets for funds to buy yourself a canned version of the sauce.
