Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce Recipe

This hearty spaghetti sauce is super easy to prepare and is so much better than jarred spaghetti sauce.

Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 45 minutes (includes spaghetti cook time) | Servings: 6

Italian recipes, spaghetti marinara, noodles


  • 8 ounce package of spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Crushed red pepper as garnish
  • Grated Parmesan as garnish


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until onion becomes translucent. Add garlic, sage and parsley and saute for 1 more minute. Add tomato paste and stir for 1 minute.
