Simple spaghetti sauce
« on: February 27, 2022, 06:11:35 PM »
Been making this for years.  Nothing special,  but the family seems to love it.
1 jar of organic tomato basil spaghetti sauce.
1lb of ground beef
3 cans of diced tomatoes
2 cans of stewed tomatoes
1 diced onion
1 diced bell pepper
2 diced jalapeño
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp chili powder.
Brown ground beef and onion. Add ingredients and simmer on low for 1 hour.


 
Add spaghetti and garlic bread and you have a great cold day dinner.

I do a very similar recipe, but usually add some mushrooms as well. Comes out good.  Like you say, it's simple and easy to make and makes a pound of mince meat go a long way. (works with minced pork just the same)

   We do so on a smaller scale and just take a jar of commercial sauce and add a large (quart size or thereabouts) can or two of diced or crushed tomatoes to a pound of browned hamburger, sometimes a little diced onion and/or a can of sliced mushrooms.

Wife doesn't like mushrooms,  but I've used pork,  venison,  and bear. It all turned out good.

Bear usually needs a little bacon fat to brown good without sticking to the pan.

That is a basic staple here, I am not very creative in the kitchen. I buy two or three different sauces then add whatever is hanging around in the fridge. Mushrooms and yellow onions are a must, I brown them with the meat then add the sauce. The last batch had a splash of Louisiana hot sauce, it was good but will lighten up a tad next time. ;D

I use Italian sausage instead of ground beef.

Eleven herbs and spices.   ???

Just a different 11 from the Colonel  That would be a Kentucky Fried Sausage.  :D

It's a minor source of national shame that NZ doesn't have an official sausage flavour. We have plenty of different sausages. Beef / lamb / pork / chicken etc, but Italian / chorizo  etc are already taken. So no signature sausage. 

Having  said that, some chorizo and bacon will work in that recipe.    :)  Or even a good old lamb sausage.   ;D

Make me own from the garden in summer and can it up. Just add the beef. Still got 3 more jars. No unpronounceable ingredients. 8) It's like boiling down maple syrup though. :D

Had spaghetti and meatballs yesterday in fact. Fresh garden picked salad along side, from the grow tent. Cheese on everything. :)

Fennel is a key ingredient in Italian sausage that gives it a signature taste.  Some may not like it.

I'm not a big spaghetti fan, so of coarse it's a favorite of my wife and one she gets a lot of compliments on. Her sauce is similar to all for spices but she adds cooked hamburger, sweet Italian sausage, pepperoni, and chicken.

I agree. I use extra fennel when I make mine.

I like a lot of oregano along with the usual garlic and etc. Lots of mushrooms in season. Strange as it may sound  I often add carrots and celery, the carrots go in later to retain some texture. The recipe relies heavily on what's handy but meat will be venison.

The Better Homes & Gardens standard cookbook has a top tier spaghetti sauce recipe. We make tomato sauce when canning as it saves time and storage space given the maters are condensed further before eaten. I can take a tad of Fennel, my wife dislikes it if any, at all is there. We only buy angel hair pasta for spaghetti- just a personal taste thing.
Olive garden has a delicious 5 cheese ziti on their menu. I found several VG copycat recipes online for it, but we've not made one yet at home. Check it out. I like spaghetti with chicken Parmesan!
