Best Ever Homemade Pasta Sauce Recipe

Once you make this Homemade Pasta Sauce recipe at home, you'll never go store-bought again! This was adapted from my mom's delicious Pasta Sauce and it goes great on all kinds of pasta dishes, such as spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli and more!


I love recipes that originate from one of my mom's delicious creations. She is the best cook, always knowing exactly what ingredients to put in every dish. Almost all of her dishes have a secret ingredient that pushes them over the edge into the abyss of mind-blowing-yumminess. Like the Ritz crackers she adds to her Meatloaf and the dry onion soup mix she adds to her Chicken Rice Bake. I have always loved her Pasta Sauce and recently asked her for the recipe. It was already a fantastic little savory sauce, but I believe now it totally and completely lives up to its title, Best EVER Homemade Pasta Sauce.

I made a batch of this Pasta Sauce last week and it smelled so incredible that I began wondering if "pasta sauce" was a candle scent. If not, it should be. I poured the sauce into jars with the intention of using one and giving the other two away. Uhhh, yeah, so...that...did not happen. All three jars were gone within TWO DAYS. Two jars went into a Lasagna recipe and the other was spread over various other things that were sent down my throat.

This Pasta Sauce would go great in these Spaghetti Squash Beef and Cheese Boats or this Easy Three-Cheese Manicotti or this delicious Baked Ziti. And although I do believe this recipe to be the BEST, here are a few other yummy Pasta Sauce options: Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce and Best Ever Spaghetti Sauce!

A brand new Lasagna recipe is on its way in the next few days. It turned out amazingly, but how could it not with this Pasta Sauce swimming around inside of it?! Thanks so much for reading, you guys. I'm so grateful for you!
