Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Most people will say their recipes are simple to make when boasting to their friends, but I really mean it when I say that this sauce is simple.  If you can operate a can opener and you know how to stir with a spoon, then you can make this sauce.  

Here's what you need:

2 garlic clove (diced)
1 onion (diced, small)
2 cans of tomato halves
1 large can of tomato sauce
2 cans of tomato paste
1 large can of spaghetti sauce
1 t basil
1 t oregano
1 t parsley
1/4 t rosemary
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t Italian seasoning 
1 t marjoram
salt & pepper

Here is what you do with all of that:

Throw everything into a large pot except the herbs.  Bring to a boil, then cover with a lid and reduce to a simmer.  Let it simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.  After one hour, get a potato masher and mash up the half tomatoes. Next, add your herbs and continue simmering for another thirty minutes or so.  

Now you have a fabulous pot of sauce that you can either can or use right away. ;D

Canning The Sauce

Fill your mason jars with the sauce and place the lids on them.
Place the jars into a water bath.  You will need to boil them for 40 minutes to 1 hour. 
Next you will take them out and let the jars cool completely without messing with them/lids.
After they have cooled, then check to make sure they have sealed by touching the top of the lids.  If it "pops", then it did not seal and you will need to boil them again. ;D
