Never Fail Pasta and Red Sauce

Never Fail Pasta and Red Sauce


  • Non-GMO corn pasta (or rice pasta)
  • 1 can/jar organic tomato paste (make sure it's no salt added)
  • 1 c. Water
  • 2t. Dried basil or 3-4 fresh basil leaves
*The following are optional and the amounts can vary to your taste to make different flavors:

  • 1/2 small sweet onion or 1-2 T dried onion, minced or powder 
  • 1-2t. Dried Italian herb mix
  • 2-3 organic celery stalks, finely chopped (replaces salt) or 2t. ground dried celery
  • 1/4 c. Sweet bell pepper (not green), chopped
  • 1/3-1/2c. Zucchini, chopped

  • Pinch of garlic powder

  • 1t. Fresh thyme

  • 1/4-1/3 c. Organic white mushrooms, chopped

  • Pinch of black pepper

  • Whatever else you think sounds good!

  1. Boil noodles according to package directions.

  2. Sauté on Medium in non stick sauce pan all the chopped veggies and spices, except sugar, in about 2T of water. Have extra water on hand to add to pan if the water dries up. This helps to prevent the veggies from sticking to the bottom without the use of oil! Sauté until onions start getting soft.

  3. Add tomato paste. Turn the heat down to Medium/low so that the sauce doesn't splatter. Add about 1c. water (less if you want thicker sauce, more for thinner) and sugar and stir till smooth.

  4. Taste test to see if any seasoning needs adjusting. Heat thoroughly.

  5. Drain noodles and place in bowl. Pour sauce on top or serve on the side. Enjoy!
