This is my mom's spaghetti sauce recipe. She was a full blooded Italian, and a great cook. This sauce thickens up while it cooks. She never measured anything, as you can see from her seasoning ingredients. She would just eyeball it and toss it in. I still cook that way today.

Serve over spaghetti, ravioli, Lasagna, etc. may be frozen for later use. A TNT recipe.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Brown onion and garlic in large pot in hot oil.
  2. Add tomato puree and paste. For each can of paste, add 2 cans of water (making 4 cans of water total). Stir.
  3. Bring to boil.
  4. Brown sausage and meat (or if desired, you can use a good meatball recipe and make meatballs out of the ground beef). Add to sauce.
  5. Season with basil, oregano, hot pepper flakes, pinch sugar, salt and pepper and wine to taste.
  6. Simmer 3 to 5 hours.
