I think the last time I bought jarred sauce was one time back in the summer. Lizzie was still in the hospital, and the other 2 girls and I had been hanging at the pool all day. We threw on our clothes and ran to get dinner. I would have been happy with going to Zaxby’s or Chick-fil-a, but they cried, “We want spaghetti!” So I ran to Publix with them and picked out some marinara sauce and noodles. They were happy and the sauce was fine, but I have figured out over time that homemade sauce is always better! There are a few sauces out there that are pretty awesome, but usually they are more expensive. So I make my own now for the most part. I have no problem with the convenience of the jarred sauce, but I am very picky when it comes to the sauce.
Here is my super EASY recipe-
Browned hamburger meat with 1 chopped onion
Add 1 container of sliced mushrooms
A few good squirts of tomato paste
1 large or 2 small cans of tomato sauce
1 large can of diced tomatoes or 2 small cans
1 glass of your favorite red wine
A couple tablespoons of worcestershire
1 tablespoon of sugar
Any fresh or dried herbs you have- I added rosemary, thyme, oregano, and marjoram
You could even add in some chopped parsley if you have it.
Cook all together for AT LEAST 30-45 minutes—The longer the better.
