Simply thin some tomato sauce with water, bring it to a boil, dump the dry spaghetti into it, and cook it for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan, until an al-dente texture is reached.

More Tomato Sauce Substitutes

What is the secret ingredient for spaghetti sauce?
Tomato sauce is very acidic and the brown sugar is necessary to tone down the ‘tart’ in the tomatoes and balance the flavors. But I think it’s the Worcestershire that is truly the secret ingredient and gives it that ‘ je ne sais quoi’! The herbs cilantro, oregano, rosemary and basil are also critical.
Do I have to peel tomatoes to make sauce?
The tomato skin is a different texture from the tomato flesh, and will remain so in sauces and purées—you’ll get tiny chunks of skin instead of an uniformly smooth mixture. Then you probably want to peel them. Same goes if you’re canning tomatoes for a later time, when they’ll probably be turned into a sauce.
How do you make spaghetti sauce from scratch from fresh tomatoes?
