Spaghetti Sauce (Top 8 Free)

My family LOVES spaghetti!  And actually anything that has red sauce in or on it.  But buying healthy sauce that is safe for my kids can really add up (sometimes it's over $5 a jar!).  I decided to try my hand at making my homemade sauce tonight.  It turned out to be quite flavorful, easy to make, and cheaper than the store bought variety.  

Spaghetti Sauce

3 cans (14 oz) tomato sauce 
1 can (12 oz) tomato paste
1/3 c oil
1/3 c dried minced onion
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 tsp basil
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 Tbsp parsley
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 c water
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (optional)

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

If desired add some top 8 free meatballs and let simmer for an additional 30 minutes before pouring over some gluten free noodles.  Serve it up with your favorite safe bread, and voila, a delicious, safe meal that can be enjoyed by all.
