Homemade spaghetti sauce has so much flavor and is so easy to make. The best thing is you can make it ahead of time and fresh or can it. You then have it ready anytime to you want it.
*2 teaspoons olive oil
*1 medium onion, chopped
*6 garlic cloves, minced
*2 (28 ounce) cans whole Italian peeled tomatoes (I use the tomatoes I can)
*1 1/2 teaspoons salt
*1/2 teaspoon black pepper
*1 teaspoon granulated sugar
*2 bay leafs
*1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
*1 teaspoon dried basil
~In a large saucepan over medium heat, sauté garlic and onion in the olive oil, until onion is translucent (careful not to burn the garlic).
~Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
~Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 2 - 3 hours or cook in slow cooker for 5-6 hours.
~If you like your spaghetti sauce smooth (my family does), use an immersion blender or blender to blend up the tomatoes.
~Serve over spaghetti or chicken.
