Homemade Pasta Sauce

I love pasta. Plain and simple. It is one of my go-to meals that I make in a pinch because 1. everyone in my family loves it 2. I usually always have the ingredients on hand.

Every since I was first married and started cooking (7.5 years ago) I have tried my hand at homemade spaghetti sauce. Without fail, each time it would taste different. I would never measure and at the same time never remember what I used the last time! Opps! My best friend recently shared with me her homemade pasta sauce recipe that she always uses, and guess what? It’s SO easy and tastes SO good!
