Homemade Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
You’ll never use store-bought spaghetti sauce again after you learn how easy this sauce is to make and how incredibly good it is.
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 lb uncooked spaghetti
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 1/2 lb Italian pork sausage crumbled
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1 tsp Italian herbs
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/4 cup tomato puree
- 2 14 oz cans chopped tomatoes
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp white sugar
- 1/4 tsp fennel seeds optional
Add water to a large stock pot. When the water is boiling, add the dried spaghetti. Cook until al dente, about 8-12 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, add the ground beef, sausage, onion, and herbs to a skillet and cook over medium high heat until the meat is browned. Add the minced garlic and tomato puree and stir well. Remove from heat.
Add the meat mixture to a 3-quart pot. Add the tomatoes and the rest of the spices. Stir it all together.
Allow to simmer for 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours with the lid on.
