Friday's Feisty Feast: Jason's All-Occasion Pasta Sauce

I posted this recipe by special request from my little sister. She's perpetually on the hunt for quick and yummy recipes, ideal for the busy and ever-hungry college student!

The immense versatility of this recipe is two-fold: 1) Add any variety of meats, veggies, or spices when you're ready to serve this feast, 2) Serve up this sauce with Pasta-for-One or as a dish to pass at a large dinner party, and 3) Choose your favorite variety of fresh or dried pasta to douse in this sassy sauce!

Jason's All-Occasion Pasta Sauce

1-2 Green Onions, thinly chopped (onion powder may be substituted)
14.5 oz can Diced Tomatoes (organic recommended)
28 oz can Crushed Tomatoes (organic recommended)
1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic, heaping
2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning
1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper

If jarring:
add 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Directions: On low, combine tomatoes in a medium saucepan. Stir with a wooden spoon. If jarring for future use, add olive oil. If using all of sauce on same day, disregard olive oil. Stir in garlic. Add in onion and Italian Seasonings. Let simmer for 30 minutes. Stir often. Taste and season to preference.

If jarring, let cool and pour in mason jar. Store in refrigerator and use within one month.

To serve: Reheat on low in medium saucepan. Boil pasta as directed. Be creative and add any of your favorite combinations of meat, veggies, or preferred spices to Jason's All-Occasion Pasta Sauce. Top with grated Parmesan cheese, fresh basil, or Jason's Favorite, sliced Kalamata Olives!
