Cherry Tomato Sauce

I made an amazing pasta sauce; 'winging it' just like my mama! I had red onion, red pepper, half a chili pepper, zucchini, and tomatoes, (mostly cherry), from the garden and diced them all up. In a large pot I poured in some olive oil and put in everything but the tomatoes. I sautéed the vegetables for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly; then stirred in the tomatoes. To this I added salt, a couple of tbsp of sugar, pepper, oregano, basil, and steak spice. I let this simmer with the lid half off for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the sauce was simmering, I made the spaghetti. Once the sauce was ready I poured the strained spaghetti into the pot and stirred it into the sauce. The kids said it was the best sauce I had ever made! Half of us had mizithra (Greek cheese) and the others had parmesan cheese on top. It was really tasty!
