The Best Pasta Sauce Ever Recipe

Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

Have you ever made your own pasta sauce at home? It really is not difficult at all — It really is cutting, heating , and seasoning 🙂

And can you believe that it really does not cost more than the jar stuff you buy in stores plus it does not have tons of preservatives

There is a funny story behind this recipe – I was making dinner like normal last week making gluten free pasta with my homemade sauce – and I thought I never shared this recipe with you all – so I whipped out my camera and took some shots – so there is not ingredient picture or that but this SERIOUSLY is the Best Pasta Sauce ever —

The Best Pasta Sauce Ever Recipe

Most of my earliest memories involve food – we would go out on occasion – and one of the restaurants we use to go to Il Fornaio. I loved the fact I could see the chefs cook and I would always get the Capellini al Pomodoro


I decided to try and make my own Pomodoro a few years ago based on what I knew in the sauce above — I have perfected it over the years

Once the sauce and pasta is ready – place the pasta in the hot sauce and cook for a minute or two so the pasta soaks up a little sauce

The sauce is gluten free ( naturally 😉 ) and made about 2 cups and cost maybe $3 — The tomatoes were actually left over from another meal and the basil is homegrown – and just some garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper
