Spaghetti Sauce

I have yet to find a spaghetti sauce that I like.  They are either to sweet or have to much sodium in them.  My homemade sauce it easy to make and freezes nicely.  I store 1 cup servings in zip lock backs for easy use. 1 cup servings work for us because it is just my husband and me.

What you need:

1/2 cup chopped carrots

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup chopped onion

olive oil

salt and pepper

4 cans of tomato sauce

1 can salt free crushed tomatoes

4 cloves of garlic (or more if you are like me)

1 Tablespoon Oregano, Basil, Or Italian Seasoning

A pinch of sugar

Place vegetables and oil in pan and sauté until soft. Season with salt and pepper.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for about 1/2 an hour.  The sauce should reduce and thicken a little. I add a little sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes.
