Easy Pasta / Pizza Sauce
2 (14.5 oz) cans of diced or crushed tomatoes
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp dried, crushed oregano
1/2 tsp dried, crushed basil
1/4 tsp onion powder
If your tomatoes are diced, be sure to puree them in a blender before getting started. If they are crushed, you don't have to do anything to them before cooking the sauce.
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer until heated through.
Okay, I'll give you a bonus recipe, just because you asked.
We like to use this sauce on our lasagna rolls. If we have pepperoni in the house, we call them lasagna pizza rolls to make them sound fancier. Either way they are some kind of good.
Here's how to assemble:
Break your lasagna noodles in half (use the edge of the counter to get a clean break) and boil until tender. Drain and let cool slightly so you don't burn your fingers. Lay out on the counter or a piece of foil. Sprinkle cheese and other toppings in the middle, such as turkey sausage or pepperoni. You can also cook up some mushrooms, onions, pepper, and zucchini. That would be so amazing...
Roll up your noodles and place seam-side down in a casserole dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Top with a generous amount of your pasta sauce.
Sprinkle with a little more cheese.
Pop in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees F. When the cheese is all melted, they are done.
Try not to drool before eating.
