Start off with home-grown herbs and vegetables-- I used lots of tomatoes, an onion, banana peppers and basil . Cook in a crock pot until tender. Blend in blender or food processor until smooth. Correct seasoning and add browned ground beef.
And you have pasta sauce.
Add beans and jalapenos and seasonings to any leftover sauce and the next meal is chili.
