I've heard you can save money by making your own and of course the health benefits of knowing exactly what you put into it and no preservatives added. Well, I came across a quick and easy recipe for a healthy spaghetti sauce on www.bodybuilding.com and decided to give it a go...
Results = DELICIOUS!
As for saving money on making it from scratch, ummmmm, I would say its pretty equal cost wise, but definitely healthier and definitely tastier!
Here's the recipe:
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium Onion, Chopped
4-6 cloves Fresh Garlic, Minced
28 oz can Diced Tomatoes
28 oz can Tomato Sauce
1 Tbsp. Dried Parsley
1 Tbsp. Dried Basil
1 Tbsp. Dried Oregano
1 tsp. Black Pepper
In a large saucepan, sauté olive oil, onions and garlic on medium heat.
When onions are transparent, add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, parsley, basil, oregano and black pepper.
I seasoned and cooked some extra lean ground beef, added the sauce and put it on some spaghetti. The family loved it.
