When you need a quick dinner recipe, make this authentic spaghetti sauce. It’s so easy and delicious, you’ll never buy store-bought tomato sauce again.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 10 oz whole wheat spaghetti or other multigrain pasta (dry)
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is softened. Add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add parsley and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions until just tender. In a colander, drain pasta and return pasta to pot. Add 1/4 cup tomato sauce to pasta and toss to coat.
  3. Transfer pasta to bowls and top with remaining sauce, cheese and additional parsley, if desired.
