    Default Spaghetti Sauce review

    Took Jorgiegirl's recipe and made spaghetti last night. I had never made sauce before!!!


    1lb ground beef
    big onion
    2 big tins of diced tomatoes
    one big tin of crushed tomatoes
    T. dried basil
    T. dried oregano
    T. crushed red chili peppers
    garlic powder to cover (approx 1/2 C)
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 tsp sugar to balance tomatoes

    chop onion
    brown in olive oil
    throw in burger while browning
    put into big pot
    generous tsp of oregano and basil
    shake in chili peppers
    fresh ground pepper
    garlic powder to cover
    1/2 tsp of white sugar
    add tins of tomatoes

    simmer 2-3 hours

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So, I did leave out the crushed red chili pepper, as my kiddos complain about Domino's new pizza sauce as being too 'spicy'! I used lean ground turkey instead of ground beef. This was much easier to make than I thought it'd be~and it was super yummy!

    Thanks for the recipe, Jordan!

    Pam, what's nice about making your own sauce, is you can control the sugar and salt. Store jar sauces are loaded with both. Sometimes I just start with tomato paste and add in the spices or use a small can of low-sodium sauce.

    I don't make a traditional sauce and can it. What I do for italian night is take canned or fresh tomatoes. (depending on season). I dice them up and put them in a sauce pan with a tsp of garlic and a splash of red wine. Oh and a little bit of italian seasonings. Saute until warm and looks good and pour over pasta.


    Its so yummy and healthy!!!

    Oh YAY!! This recipe has been passed on in my family for a few generations now. It's pretty simple, traditional recipe, but very tasty!

    Glad you enjoyed it!
