Growing up in an Italian family, tomato sauce was always a staple in our house. Mom would hit up the can-can sale at the grocery store multiple times – and I’m pretty sure she still does that – to pick up cases of sauce to store in the basement.  As long as we had a can of tomato sauce on hand, we could eat some pretty good meals!

Thanks to my parents, tomato sauce is now a major staple in our house, too!  Just like mom, I’ll buy a case of crushed tomatoes (just one case!) when they go on sale at the grocery store.  I also try to get a pouch of tomato sauce in all of my Hungryroot deliveries.

One 28 ounce can of sauce can go a long way for the two of us!  I’ll make a big batch of homemade pasta sauce and freeze it for later.  Or I’ll season it with Italian spices and use it on our pizza.  It also makes a super easy dipping sauce to heat and eat!

Tomato sauce can go way beyond pasta, but there’s nothing more comforting than a plate of pasta and some homemade sauce.  If you’re looking for some new recipes to make using tomato sauce, I’m sharing 11 easy recipes that include pasta, small bites, Italian inspired main dishes, and even breakfast!
