The Easiest Homemade Freezer Spaghetti Sauce Recipe Ever!

We had a ton of tomatoes from our garden this year. I had to figure out something to do with them before they went bad.

I decided to make spaghetti sauce because it's easy and you can use up a lot of tomatoes relatively quickly. I'm not the type of person to spend hours in the kitchen blanching and peeling tomatoes. That's just not me. I came up with the BEST spaghetti sauce recipe ever that requires so little work that you will never go back to store bought again! Lazy cooks unite! This sauce is rich and thick with a delicious flavor that will leave your family begging for seconds! The hands-on portion of this recipe literally takes 5 minutes. Read on for the full recipe:

Keen Koala's Quick and Easy Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Recipe (vegetarian & gluten free)


- 10 large tomatoes or 20 small tomatoes (I used 14 tomatoes as mine varied in size)
- 1 heaping tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dried basil or 1 tbsp fresh basil
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil


1. Roughly chop tomatoes and place in a large pot

2. Add all of the other ingredients

3. Simmer uncovered for an hour over medium-low heat.

4. Once everything is tender, use an immersion blender to puree the sauce. This will chop up the tomato skins so fine that you won't even notice them in your sauce!

5. Continue cooking the sauce down for a couple more hours until you reach your desired consistency. 

6. Pour into clean jars (only fill the jars 3/4 full as the sauce will expand as it freezes).

7. Cool the jarred sauces uncovered in the fridge until cold. Once cold, cover the sauces and freeze.

8. To use the sauce, thaw in fridge overnight. Pour into a saucepan and reheat. Add 1 tbsp parmesan cheese, 2 tbsp heavy cream, and 1 additional tsp of white sugar while reheating.

9. Serve over your favorite pasta or zucchini noodles.
