  1. Open the can with tomatoes. Pour them into a pan with a thick bottom together with fresh chopped tomatoes. Add tomato paste. Place the pan over the heat and pour in the wine.
  2. Stir everything together carefully. If you want to use stock, you should add it now. If you want to make the sauce vegan, use vegetarian broth. You can also choose chicken or beef broth to enrich the taste of the sauce.
  3. Simmer it for several minutes.
  4. Now it's time to add the spices. Mash garlic, chop fresh basil, thyme, marjoram and oregano. Add everything into the pot. Rub all the herbs between your fingers for them to give the dish more flavor.
  5. Now add salt, sugar and pepper to the sauce. Mix everything carefully.
  6. Reduce the heat to minimum and cook the sauce for a long 8 hours. Stir it from time to time.
  7. Turn the heat off and leave the sauce for 15 minutes to cool down. Then you should transfer it to the fridge and leave it overnight.

 The sauce will be thick and have a nice red color. You can make spaghetti sauce more interesting by adding onion and mushrooms. Onion is often used while cooking tomato sauce. It will make the sauce spicier. You can also use onion powder if you want your sauce to be smoother. Mushrooms will make this simple sauce look like a nutritious gravy. If you serve spaghetti with it, there would be no need to add meatballs or stewed ground beef to the plate with pasta.
