Homemade Spaghetti Sauce


Back when we first started eating clean, I thought it might be a good idea to try my hand at making homemade spaghetti sauce from scratch.  You know, buy a ton of tomatoes, cook them, simmer everything on the stove for hours, and then use the batch for several rounds of spaghetti….Yeah, that NEVER happened.  But I found something that works even better.

At this year’s garage sale, I sold an old recipe card holder.   As I was flipping through it, I found a few recipe cards that I had shoved in it…probably about 15 years ago.  One of which was for Spaghetti Seasoning Mix.  It was written, for me, by my grandma.  I knew I had to try it.

It was so easy!  And so delicious!  Hubby asked if I had bought a new brand of sauce.  I just smiled and told him I made it myself.

Next, sprinkle your seasoning mix on top of the tomato sauce.

Let it simmer for about 30 minutes.  Then serve!  Pour over noodles and meatballs.

Or add it to ground beef.

If you want to make this sauce even easier…take five minutes and make a batch of the seasoning mix.  Measure 1/3 Cup of seasoning mix each time you make your sauce.

And what’s even better, you can easily tweak this recipe to match your family’s tastes.  Sometimes I hide extra veggies, sometimes I mix in some extra seasonings.

Make it your own!
