Spaghetti Sauce

I started making my own sauce a while ago.  It's not an exact science, but it always turns out good!  This can be served over pasta or as the sauce component for Lasagna.

Makes 6-8 servings

1 28oz can and 1 14.5oz can of Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1 Medium Yellow Onion - Diced
1 Green Bell Pepper - Diced
1 Red Bell Pepper - Diced
1 Package of Mushrooms - Thick Sliced
2 Tsp Dried Oregano
1 Tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 Tsp Dried Red Pepper Flakes
Pepper to Taste

In a deep sauce pan, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil or grapeseed oil until shimmering.  Saute onion and bell peppers until soft - about 5 - 8 minutes.  Add mushrooms and saute for another 3 minutes - until browned.  Add tomato sauce and spices and stir.  Allow to simmer for 30 minutes and taste.  Adjust herbs until it is spicey/savory enough for your liking.  Great base sauce for anything - adding sausage or chicken and serving over noodles is a complete meal.
