Out of desperation for some quick spaghetti sauce, I managed to make some based on 2 main ingredients: a can of each tomato paste and crushed tomatoes, and whatever I had in my spice cupboard. Surprisingly it worked. Here’s what I put:

1 can tomato paste
1 can crushed tomatoes
3/4 cup hot water
2-3 tablespoons sugar
tablespoon crushed oregano
teaspoon Italian seasoning
Vegeta or chicken bullion
Worcestershire sauce
Mrs. Dash
All seasoning spice with salt
a small can of mushrooms

It tasted different. I can’t say if it was good or bad; well, definitely not bad. IM liked it and I thought it was pretty good.
