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.
Add to your favorite pasta and some garlic bread!
ENJOY!!! Can’t wait for the leftovers…the sauce just gets better with time. The longer it sits, the better it gets! =)
