Red Sauce for Veggie Spaghetti or Lasagna

Red sauce

Great for Lasagna, spaghetti squash or zucchini spaghetti!

1 largest can of tomato sauce or 2 regular size cans

1 regular can tomato puree

1/2 C water

1 Tbp olive oil

3 cloves diced or chopped garlic

1 sprig fresh thyme, I personally add 1 drop of Vitality Thyme by Young Living (Get yours here)

2 fresh basil leaves chopped, I personally add 1 drop of Vitality Basil by Young Living (Get yours here)

1 sprig fresh oregano, I personally add 1 drop of Oregano Thyme by Young Living (Get yours here)

OPTIONAL – 1 small chopped onion

OPTIONAL – 2 oz. sliced or chopped mushrooms


Add chopped onion and mushrooms to saucepan with olive oil until tender.  On medium heat add garlic and fresh herbs (or dried if that’s all you have), add the water, tomato sauce and puree, stir to incorporate and turn down to simmer for 30 minutes to an hour to let it all marry together, the longer the better.  Put it all in a crockpot on low for 4-5 hours for a really great sauce!
