Homemade Spaghetti Sauce: a 15 Minute Recipe

4.8 from 5 reviews


  • 8 oz spaghetti pasta
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced finely
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 lbs tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat and add onions and garlic. Cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and allow vegetables to cook for about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, squish any large pieces of tomatoes so that the sauce is slightly chunky, but without any significantly large pieces. If you want your homemade spaghetti sauce more of a paste, you can blend or mash tomatoes more.
  4. Drain pasta when it’s done. Add to sauce and toss with tongs until well coated.
  5. Serve hot, adding additional salt and pepper as desired.
