A recipe for spaghetti sauce

leave a comment »

  • 1 large (1/2 lb) yellow onion
  • 1 28 oz can of chunky tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, or enough to coat the bottom of a saute pan
  • 10 basil leaves


  1. dice onion
  2. saute onion
  3. add sauce when onions are cooked sufficiently (I like translucence, and a little browning)
  4. simmer for 15 minutes
  5. mince basil and stir into sauce


  • saute 1 zucchini, diced, with the onion
  • add pre-cooked meatballs when the sauce is added


  • Trader Joe’s sells bags containing two 1/2 lb organic onions
  • I like Muir Glen organic tomato sauce
  • Trader Joe’s sells tasty frozen, pre-cooked meetballs
