Frugal Spaghetti Sauce

This is my favorite frugal spaghetti sauce I hope you enjoy it too!

Quick, Cheaper & Easy Tomato Sauce
Adapted from the Hillbillyhousewife

■2 tablespoons olive oil

■2 tablespoons dry onion

■1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

■12 oz can tomato paste (.33/each =.66)

■up to 6 cans filled with water

■1 teaspoon basil

■1/4 teaspoon oregano (optional)

■1 tablespoon honey

■1 teaspoon salt

This sauce is so easy, so cheap and so good, you won’t believe it. Heat the oil in a 2 quart size saucepan. Add the dried onion and garlic. Stir the onion and garlic around in the oil for about 30 seconds, or until they start to smell good. Add the tomato paste. Now fill the empty can with fresh water and add it to the pot. Do it again, so two cans of water have been added. Stir it all up until the sauce is smooth and thick. Add the seasonings. Cover and simmer for about 5 or 10 minutes depending on your time and fuel situation. After the flavors have mingled long enough to know each other better, you are done.

All the other ingredients are really just a few pennies each, especially if you buy your spices from Sam's Club. My estimated cost for this is .70 which is .19 or 21% less then the cheapest sauce at Wal-Mart. Plus it tastes much better then the prepacked sauce.

Remember a prudent wife is a gift! Enjoy!!!
