I have been making this quick sauce for years, since I saw Tyler Florence making it on How to Boil Water. I'm creating this recipe card to give to my young son, who is learning to live on his own and how to cook meals on this own. It's very simple, and beats bottled spaghetti sauce that has all kinds of crazy ingredients I wouldn't normally use! One day, I'll photograph a more "finished" shot, but this one is part of a recipe for Pasta Lasagna that I will be uploading onto my blog very soon.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes (buy San Marzano if possible)
1 teaspoon oregano, dried*
1 teaspoons basil, dried*
or 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 whole bay leaves
½ teaspoon sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
