Mom’s Spaghetti Sauce

This is the spaghetti sauce my mother made in my youth.  We didn’t buy bottles of already made pasta sauce… was there a market for them then?

  • ½ large onion, chopped
  • oregano
  • chili powder
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • large can (29 oz.) Hunt’s tomato sauce

  5. Add tomato sauce and tomato soup, and stir
