Homemade spaghetti sauce. Easily customizable. Pile it on top of some pasta! Dig in!!
This Homemade Spaghetti Sauce is simple, yet scrumdillicious. That’s my made-up word for this sauce. I had to come up with a basic sauce when I was cooking for my kids. This one didn’t like onions, that one didn’t like olives or bell peppers, I’m not fond of mushrooms. Best thing to do is make a basic sauce and let anyone add something if they wanted to.
How do you make spaghetti from scratch?
Simple. Start with some form of tomato sauce. I use canned sauce. Add seasonings, like oregano, thyme, garlic salt or powder, basil, parsley, onion salt or powder (wouldn’t do both garlic salt and onion salt – alternate the salt and powder), and pepper are some of your main spices for spaghetti sauce.
How can I make spaghetti sauce taste better OR why is my homemade sauce bitter?
Two suggestions. Sugar. Add some sugar to balance out the acidity in the sauce. It won’t make it sweet unless you overdo the sugar. Or baking soda. You could add 1/4 tsp of baking soda. Stir and let sit for a bit and do it’s job before taking another taste test.
Can homemade spaghetti sauce be frozen?
Tomato Sauce and Spaghetti sauce are pretty similar. Spaghetti sauce has spices. And, yes, they can be frozen. Go check out Oh My Veggies post on How to make and freeze homemade tomato sauce.
Homemade or Store bought?
Why use Prego or Ragu, when you can have this, about as easy as pouring a jar of who knows what in the pan? And guess what, you know exactly what’s in this. Do you know what’s in Prego or Ragu?
