    Default Easy Chunky Spaghetti Sauce

    Easy Chunky Spaghetti Sauce

    Recipe Description
    Not 100% from scratch, but fast and awfully good.
    Preparation Steps:
    Wash and chop bell pepper and onion.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Time Needed:
    15-20 minutes
    1 26.5 oz. can/jar of spaghetti sauce, your choice (I like Hunt's in the can, traditional or green pepper/mushroom flavor)

    1 6.5 oz. can of mushroom pieces and stems, drained

    1 can petite diced tomatoes, do not drain

    1/2 small green bell pepper, chopped

    1/2 c. chopped onion

    minced garlic (I use about 2 tbsp., but go by your own taste)

    1/2 tsp. basil

    1/2 tsp. oregano

    1/2 tsp sugar

    sprinkle of red pepper flakes (may omit)
    About 6
    Stir together all ingredients in a medium sauce pot and simmer covered on medium heat until your vegetable seasonings are tender. Taste to adjust spices -- I like to add a little extra basil. If you choose to add meat, simmer it a while in the sauce to add flavor and tenderize it.

    Thank you. I just bought some cans of that on major sale and I was kind of wondering how to dress it up. That sounds really yummy. Appreciate you making the effort to post it and share it. Have a great day!

    I buy jars of pasta sauce when they are on sale. I add my homemade ratatouille to it. I always have some "rat" in the freezer! (Zuch and/or summer squash, onions, diced tomatoes, eggplant, garlic. Chop all up and put all in pot. Cook til done. Easy and tasty. I make huge pots of it in summer when these veggies are cheap.)
