Three Ingredient Pasta Sauce has Tons of Flavor
Pasta sauce can be as complicated or as simple as you want to make it. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make a flavorful, delicious sauce that you’d be proud to serve to company. I recently needed a sauce for a side dish of pasta, and realized that I had forgotten to purchase some at the store. I checked my pantry, and sure enough, I had a jar of home canned tomatoes. Knowing I had garlic and basil in the kitchen, I was all set for a pot of Three Ingredient Pasta Sauce. My dinner was sure to be flavorful and beautiful!
What Makes Three Ingredient Pasta Sauce Amazing
Fresh ingredients, like basil, give a phenomenal flavor to Three Ingredient Pasta Sauce with very little effort, or cost. Basil is an easy plant to grow in an herb garden or pot in your home, and it has a great payback: fresh flavor any time you like. I plant several plants of basil every year, as I love it in pesto, pasta sauce, and on pizza, just to name a few of it’s uses. Garlic is also a staple in my kitchen. It’s a fantastic flavoring whether you use it fresh, dried, or pre-minced in a jar. I keep all three in my kitchen for various uses, and the pre-minced came in really handy in this recipe. Just measure and you are all set! The tomatoes I used I canned myself. I try to can a bushel or two every summer for use later in the year. I can get about 20 quarts from a bushel, which I pay $10 for. You can’t get much better than that. In total, the pasta sauce cost less than $.75, and that was enough to feed 4. Add in a pound of pasta for $1 and you’ve fed your family of four dinner for $1.75 with Three Ingredient Pasta Sauce. Not bad!
