Ingredients
  Spaghetti 8 Ounce (Uncooked, Linguine / Any Other Pasta)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (For The Spaghetti)
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Medium, finely chopped
  Green bell pepper 1 Medium, chopped fine to medium
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Roma tomatoes 15 , peeled and chopped (I Used 15, Because They Were Small; You May Want To Adjust The Amount If You Have Larger Tomatoes. You May Also Use Other Varieties Of Tomatoes. Note: I Have A Quick Tip On Peeling Tomatoes.)
  Fresh parsley 2 Tablespoon, finely chopped (For All Of The Herbs, You May Substitute Dried Herbs; Just Use 1/3 Of The Amount.)
  Fresh basil 2 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Fresh oregano 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Fresh tarragon 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Fresh rosemary 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (For The Sauce)
  Shredded parmesan cheese 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

In a large, deep skillet, sauté 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped green pepper, and 2 chopped cloves of garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil, until clear and tender. Add 15 peeled and chopped Roma tomatoes, along with 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes start to cook down. Continue to cook, until the sauce thickens and the flavors are well blended. The cooking process may take 45 minutes to an hour. If the sauce becomes too thick, add a small amount of water. (Adding too much water will make your tomato sauce runny.) When sauce is nearing completion, make your pasta. Add 8 oz. spaghetti (or linguine) to boiling water, which has been salted with 1 teaspoon salt. Boil for about 10 minutes, or until tender, but still chewy. Drain spaghetti through a colander, and arrange cooked spaghetti on a large platter. Spoon homemade Italian sauce over the top. Sprinkle with about ¾ cup shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve immediately with a green salad and Italian bread. This is a delicious, inexpensive, and hearty meal. It is great for vegetarians, also! I hope you enjoy it! --Betty
