This is my new spaghetti sauce recipe. Loved it! I made it yesterday using all ground beef and no italian sausage. I tasted it but wasn't able to serve it until today. It was much better after the flavors had a chance to mingle overnight. I'll always make it a day ahead now.
my family's favorite spaghetti sauce
We LOVE this. Very hearty. Freezes well, if you need to divide it because it make so much.
This was fabulous! Tons of flavor and just enough sweetnes. Had enough to feed a family of 5 and still have enough left to freeze for another meal.
This is the best spaghetti recipe EVER. It's fool proof, as you can tell from others who have tweaked the recipe here and there. I skip the sugar altogether. Another great add is 1 tablespoon of Chef Paul's Pizza and Pasta magic. Makes it SPICY!
