1. Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

If you love the flavor of garlic in your pasta, this is the sauce for you! In addition to the garlic, the sauce contains several authentic Italian ingredients that meld for a pasta sauce you’ll want to eat all the time. There’s a reason it’s my first on the list of delicious pasta sauces.


1 large onion, chopped

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves

2 (28-ounce) cans whole Italian plum tomatoes, with their juices

3 whole heads roasted garlic, cloves removed from peels


Sauté the onion in the oil in a large saucepan until they’re soft and a little bit golden. This should take about 4 to 6 minutes. Toss in the garlic and cook the mixture for a minute, stirring the entire time. Add the tomato paste, salt, balsamic vinegar, red pepper, hot sauce, Italian seasoning and the basil and continue cooking the sauce for about a minute. Mash up the tomatoes in their juice and put them in the pan. You can do this with your hands or a mashed potato utensil. Stir the sauce to mix the ingredients, then simmer it for about 20 minutes. Give it a good stir now and then. Add the garlic cloves and cook the sauce for at least another 30 minutes, but up to 45 more minutes. Serve over pasta.
