Omg I love spaghetti sauce!!!



Ok I make mine different each time but I love Roma tomatoes for spaghetti sauce. I like to let the sauce simmer for awhile without the lid, so some of the water evaporates and you're left with nothing but thick tomato goodness.


I like cherry tomatoes too for extra sweetness. Heirlooms are wonderful as well for that full-bodied, rich tomato flavor. Spaghetti sauce made with real tomatoes is nothing short of heaven.


Sometimes I will add canned tomato paste to thicken things up in the end if the sauce is still a bit watery....but this is optional.


I bake ground beef in my little toaster oven (less fattening than frying but still great tasting) with red onion....and Worcestershire sauce at the end.


As far as how many tomatoes to add for your sauce....this is entirely up to you and contingent on how much sauce you actually want to make. I like to have enough to freeze, so I make a lot.


I add the fresh tomatoes to my pot and crush them all down. I do not remove the seeds but to each their own. I add oregano, bay leaf, chili peppers, garlic, and a pinch of rosemary. I always add delicate basil at the end of cooking so I don't destroy the oils.


I then get the sauce simmering while the meat is baking....adding it to the sauce when it's done.

After the sauce brews for a couple hours on low, stirring it frequently, I then add my red, orange, and yellow bell peppers, as well as my small pieces of zucchini, and then portobello mushrooms at the end....so the veggies won't be soggy.


Enjoy over whole wheat linguine like I do, or whatever pasta you prefer.

Some people remove the skins on their tomatoes but I NEVER do.


I love tomato skins and think they make the sauce better tasting.

Thanks, Nerd & Raccoon.


Of course you can take my recipe and fudge it around to suit your tastes....like any other recipe. I never make it the same anyway. Depends on what's available.


Glad to hear you'll try it out. It's pretty tasty.

Davsher,
I'd say I'm about to be in the same boat as you!! I too need a good recipe. I've tried making it before, but mine is always terrible and I hate the waste of so much hard work! Good luck in the making of yours and let us know how it comes out.

Brenda, I'd love your recipe if you wouldn't mind??
