This is the best and easiest homemade pasta sauce I’ve ever made. It’s so simple but tastes so delicious too. It only takes about 20 minutes to make too. Great for a quick and easy dinner any night of the week. If you can open a few cans and slice garlic you can make this delicious sauce in just minutes for a quick and easy dinner. Add in cooked ground beef or cooked sausage to beef it up.

  • 28 oz can Diced Tomatoes
  • 6 oz can Tomato Paste
  • 15 oz can Tomato Sauce
  • 3 Garlic Cloves sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Parsley dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano dried
  • 1 teaspoon Basil dried
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar


  • Add the oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat.
  • Add the sliced garlic cloves, stir and heat for a few minutes. You want them to be fragrant but not brown at all. If they brown they will be bitter.
  • Once the garlic is fragrant, add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Bring the sauce to a boil, cover, and turn down the heat to low or enough heat to maintain a simmer.
  • Simmer for 15 minutes or longer if you have time.
  • Serve over cooked pasta.
