This Simple Spaghetti Sauce will save the day, or at least dinner when you run out of your favorite spaghetti sauce.
I’m working hard to get Mini Chef in the kitchen with me as much as possible lately. I want to inspire him and teach him confidence in the kitchen while he’s at an age where he’s interested in it. This sauce is a simple one. It uses basic herbs and spices and comes together very quickly. It’s a wonderful, quick and easy pasta sauce for kids and adults alike to through together on a busy weekday evening.
Typically, I measure out all the ingredients called for and put it in small, manageable containers before I let Mini Chef get to work. It takes some of the stress off of him as he learns, and allows him to simply get caught up in the creative side of cooking without stressing out about whether or not he got the right measuring spoon. Once he starts learning math, I’ll start with the measuring spoons. But for now, I just want to make it fun for him. So the less complicated, the better.
