This is a recipe I came up with to use the abundance of our garden's tomato supply. Our family loves this chunky spaghetti sauce!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onions, garlic, celery, peppers, and mushrooms in vegetable oil until tender.
  2. Combine sauteed vegetables with tomatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered until thickened to your liking (1 1/2 to 2 hours).
  3. Stir often to prevent sticking.
  4. Ladle into clean quart jars, leaving 1 inch headspace.
  5. Remove air bubbles, wipe jar rims, and cap with properly preteated lids.
  6. When jars have cooled to room temperature, freeze.

Use extra-virgin olive oil rather than vegetable oil. It will really make a big difference... Alan Leonetti
