hOmemade spaghetti sauce

AuthorHeather WallaceCategoryDifficultyBeginner

Kick that jar of spaghetti sauce to the curb...you can make this flavorful recipe with pantry ingredients that will win over any sauce from a jar!
Even though it takes 3 hours to simmer it's super easy! Just throw the ingredients into a pot and simmer...easy peasy.

This is my mom's recipe that I grew up with that I crave whenever I have spaghetti. My friend Lisa has also made an addition of carrots when she makes it which also sounds delicious! Make your own additions and see what you come up with or leave out the meat to make it a marinara sauce...yum!
