It's only within the last year that I discovered how much sugar and sodium are in jarred spaghetti sauce, and how easy and cheap it is to make my own. Last night I made some that was pretty great, if I may say so myself. Which I may. Because this is my blog.
It was a Pinterest recipe but not really much of a recipe. Canned tomatoes, garlic, oregano, a little salt and sugar, and the crowning glory, fresh basil. Basil happens to be the one and only thing we have growing this year, and it's delicious.
Even the kid who claims to hate spaghetti sauce whispered in my ear that he "actually liked it" and helped himself to seconds. I call that a win!
