One of my favorite recipes is the recipe for my spaghetti sauce. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think it's pretty damn good if I do say so myself. Here's what you do: 
  1. Saute an onion and a couple cloves of garlic in olive oil  (Be careful not to let the garlic cook too long, or it'll burn and get bitter. About 30 seconds will do)
  2. Add a couple cans of tomato puree.  Just plain old tomato puree. Nothing fancy.
  3. Throw in some basil, oregano, parsley, and a small amount of mint leaves. Add a little garlic powder, some salt and pepper, and about a quarter cup of red wine. (The general rule of thumb is don't cook with what you wouldn't drink).
  4. Then just let it simmer away for a couple of hours until you're ready to eat. The longer you let it cook, the thicker and more flavorful it'll get.
 This is one of those recipes that you can make hours ahead of time and just let it simmer all day long. It's also one of those really versatile recipes where you can throw in pretty much anything in your fridge and it'll still be good. It's a good chance to use up ground beef or sausage, or (my personal favorite) chicken thighs. Just brown the meat in a skillet and throw it in the sauce. And it's delicious.
