Homemade Spaghetti Sauce


I found this recipe in Erin Chase’s $5 Dinner Cookbook and have been using it for the past year or so. Today I was making lasagna for dinner and decided to make the sauce for it.

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
$5 Dinners

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1 – 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes or 2 – 14.5 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tsp. or to taste Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. beef granules
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic


  1. Place all the ingredients in a saucepan.
  2. Bring up to a rolling boil. (You don’t want a full boil because you don’t want spaghetti sauce everywhere.)
  3. Simmer for about 15 minutes.
  4. Serve over your favorite pasta.

Note: You may add 1 Tbsp. of white sugar or a shredded carrot to cut back on the acidity of the tomatoes or to add sweetness to the sauce.
