Quick & Easy Spaghetti Sauce
Make this simple spaghetti sauce as smooth or chunky as you like. Italian seasoning usually contains dried thyme leaves, oregano, rosemary, marjoram, and basil. - Jenny Jones

- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning (try my seasoning mix)
- 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- pepper to taste
- 2 Tablespoons fresh sliced basil leaves
- Puree tomatoes (with their juice) in a food processor or blender about 15 seconds to your desired thickness. Set aside.
- In a saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté garlic in oil for one minute, watching so it doesn’t burn.
