Recipe: Easy Red Pasta Sauce

Sebarkan ke teman & keluarga anda

Plain, simple, no frills, basic red sauce that tastes great on a variety of pasta and is not watered down. For making a good sauce, use canned tomatoes. Except for the summer months, the fresh tomatoes are usually harvested when green and left a long time to ripen. Add more red pepper flakes if you like your sauce spicy

Easy Red Pasta Sauce Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • cup chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley

  • 1 tablespoon dried basil

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (29 ounce) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes, drained

  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes

  • 12 ounces angel hair pasta

How to Make Easy Red Pasta Sauce

  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, warm oil and saute garlic; heat through until the garlic turns translucent, not brown. Add onion and cook over low heat until translucent; 5 to 10 minutes.

  2. Add parsley, basil and ground black pepper; stir. Add tomatoes and cover; raise heat to medium and bring to a strong simmer. Lower heat and add red pepper flakes. Cover saucepan and cook for 25 to 35 minutes.

  3. The sauce can be run in the food processor for 2 to 3 seconds to achieve a more uniform sauce or let the sauce cook over medium-low heat uncovered for 10 minutes or until it thickens.

  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain and serve with sauce.

Easy Red Pasta Sauce Reviews

  • This was an ok basic recipe but I did have to do quite a bit of sprucing so that it would suit our taste. I added about 2 tsp of season salt, used crushed tomatoes instead of stewed and added about 2 tbls of sugar. After all that…. it tasted much better.

  • Not only was this EASY but it was ABSOLUTLEY AWESOME try adding so green, yellow and red peppers too FANTASTIC

  • Disappointing. Sauce looked good, but there was no depth of flavor, no punch. Over all, a very boring sauce. Will not make again.

  • Im only 15, with only a basic cooking knowledge, and I was able to cook this sauce quickly and with ease. It had a great taste, though I had no pepper flakes = Thanks for the recipe, I will continue to use it. 5 stars

  • This was delicious It was a little chunkier than I expected, but it almost made it taste fresher that way.

  • We wanted something quick and easy to go with mozzarella sticks. This was wonderful. I needed to use up some tomatoes before they went bad and this was an excellent way. I am new to making my own sauces, and I am glad to have found a recipe that I liked. My husband loved it, which is saying alot.

  • Tasty, easy, and adaptable to personal tastes (I added more red pepper to give it punch.(

  • So good but when it was done i mashed it with a potatoe masher to make it less chucky

  • This sauce is plain, simple, no frills and basic just like it claims. It tasted good, but it just didnt wow me.

  • This is surprisingly tasty for such a simple dish. I did add about 1 tsp pepper flakes instead of a pinch, I also used spaghetti instead of angel hair, it was just fine. I would make again perhaps adding chicken or shrimp would also make it extra special.

  • I have made this with both stewed tomatos and crushed tomatos. It is easier and by far more tasty with crush tomatos. I left out the dried basil and just used all fresh basil and added one small onion. I know some think this is a boring sauce, but it is more authentic than the store bought spaghetti sauce many may be use to eatting. This is an excellent sauce

  • This was delicious and very easy. I did not run it through a food processor and I used fresh basil rather than dried. It worked very well in my turkey lasagna.

  • I made this exactly as stated but added green and yellow bell pepper and zucchini. My guest loved it and asked for the recipe. Its a winner.

  • This has become a household favorite. I used fresh basil from my herb garden and it made all the flavors pop. I added a sprinkle of sugar like someone suggested and it brought it all together Great with parmesan crusted chicken or bruschetta

  • Just what i was looking for

  • Very good sauce I used a 29 oz can of tomato puree because that was what I had on hand, and threw in a drained 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes as well for a little chunkiness. I also decreased the olive oil to 3 TBSP to reduce the fat and found that to be a good amount. Served with Meatball Nirvana meatballs from this site for a very good supper I do think if I were serving the sauce plain I would add in some more garden vegetables, but the sauce is very good as written without additions.

  • This is a great red base pasta sauce.It can have lots of flavor with endless possibilities. I added red and yellow bell peppers ,doubled the garlic,used fresh basil and and 2 oz of tomato sauce. No more store bought sauce for me.

  • I wrote this recipe so many years ago and never thought so many people would respond to it I love how people have changed it to make it their own and to suit their own tastes Now, 10+ years later I look back on this recipe with fond memories of when I was a college student and first learned to cook for myself. Even though my tastes and kitchen skill level has changed over the years, I still fondly look back at this recipe. 🙂

  • Very easy

  • This has become my go to base for pasta sauce. I use some of the other reviewers suggestions to jazz it up a little bit, like using crushed tomatoes and adding some salt and sugar.

  • I love this recipe I used crushed tomatoes and put 3 to 4 cloves of minced garlic in. This is a great receipt for pizza sauce. I will make a double batch when I make it for pasta and freeze the rest for pizza night My husband and son love this recipe Oh, and I add oregano as well.

  • Simply loved it. Definitely a keeper Thanks for the awesome recipe

  • I am incredibly picky about red sauce and love a light red sauce with fresh canned or stewed tomatoes. Not only was this easy but the whole table just raved about how good it was and everyone had seconds I served over cheese tortellini and made it exactly as the recipe is written.

  • It was simple to make and very tasty. I loved the flavor but my family would not touch it because it was too spicy for them. I liked the heat however. When I make it in the future, I will make two batches and leave the red pepper flakes out for the family and put them in for me.
