I recently posted the recipe for my husbands Sweet Home Made Spaghetti Sauce and today I’m going to post the recipe for the spaghetti I grew up eating. Like the previous spaghetti sauce, this one is pretty easy. However, it does involve a little more work!
- 1 pound ground beef you can use chuck or round if you'd like
- 1 jar of Prego spaghetti sauce - your choice of flavor smaller jar
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 can of whole peeled tomatoes
- Garlic Salt
- Italian Seasoning
- Bay Leaf
In a large saucepan, you will brown the beef and drain any grease left.
Add in the jar of Prego, can of diced tomatoes, a can of whole tomatoes, and then use enough water just to rinse each can or jar and add to the pan. This is done for two reasons; the first reason is to use all the Prego sauce, and any juices or small tomato prices left in the cans/jar, and the other reason is you will need a little water added to the sauce, so it isn't too thick.
Next add in all your seasonings. Each person is different on how much they need of each seasoning, but my mom would always put about one tablespoon of the herbs and then to taste for the salt & pepper.
Mix everything together really good, cover, and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat and let simmer for about 2 hours. Be sure to stir occasionally, so the sauce doesn't stick or burn to the pan.
Cook for about 2 hours
There will be enough spaghetti from this recipe to feed a good size family. You can also can or freeze this recipe for future meals.
