Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 lb ground beef (or sausage)
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 cans tomato sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (can subsitute 1 can tomato sauce if you don't like chunky sauce)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP dried parsley
  • 1-2 tsp minced garlic
  1. Brown ground beef with onion and drain fat. Add all of the remaining ingredients and simmer for at least 1 hr., stirring frequently.
  2. Tip: This sauce is even better if you let it sit for a day or two in the fridge, or if you freeze it. I can usually get at least 2 big meals out of one batch of this, if not 3-4 depending on the dish that I am using it for.
