Easy Red Pasta Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (29 ounce) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes, drained
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 12 ounces angel hair pasta


  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, warm oil and saute garlic; heat through until the garlic turns translucent, not brown. Add onion and cook over low heat until translucent; 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add parsley, basil and ground black pepper; stir. Add tomatoes and cover; raise heat to medium and bring to a strong simmer. Lower heat and add red pepper flakes. Cover saucepan and cook for 25 to 35 minutes.
  3. The sauce can be run in the food processor for 2 to 3 seconds to achieve a more uniform sauce or let the sauce cook over medium-low heat uncovered for 10 minutes or until it thickens.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain and serve with sauce.
