Bek's Spiced up Spaghetti Sauce
60 mins (prep 15, cooking 45)
16 ingredients
12 servings
This does NOT qualify as made from scratch - but each time I've tried to do that, my family revolts and says "We like yours better!" I've been asked for the recipe many times, too, so what the heck - here it is on Zaar in all it's glory. Don't get me wrong, this takes a lot more time than opening a jar, and it makes enough to feed an army. It does freeze very well, though. The best part is, you can use any or all of the veggies and really pack a nutritional punch. I've even added finely diced carrots and it still turned out great. I will say that, imho, the HOT italian sausage really makes the sauce. I *suppose* you can use sweet, if you really need too...
