Fast and Easy Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

By: Sarah Carlye

When you don’t have time to make a great spaghetti sauce from scratch, you don’t have to settle for jar or canned spaghetti sauce. You can start with a basic jar or can spaghetti sauce as a base and create a delicious spaghetti sauce.

You can use the following guidelines to make an inexpensive spaghetti sauce taste close to homemade sauce. Start with 2 jars or 2 cans of inexpensive ready-made spaghetti sauce. Put in a pot large enough to have room to add more ingredients. The size of the cans of ingredients and the amount of the ingredients can vary depending on personal preference. Add a little olive oil and some grated parmesan cheese.

SEASONINGS – fresh or dried seasonings can be used to season meat and sauce. The following seasonings will add to a fuller Italian flavor to ready-made sauces:

• Oregano
• Garlic-salt or powder
• Italian seasoning blend
• Thyme
• Rosemary
• Basil
• Salt
• Pepper

CANNED INGREDIENTS – the following can be added with juice to the sauce:

• Stewed tomatoes
• Tomato puree
• Chopped tomatoes
• Tomato paste (small can)

MEAT – brown meat in olive oil, season (except for sausage), drain grease, and then add to sauce. Types of meat that can be used:

• Italian sausage-mild or hot, sliced in bite size pieces
• Ground meat-beef or turkey
• Chicken breast or beef-cubed
• Vegetarian meat alternative-usually needs extra seasoning
• Meatballs-homemade or ready-made

VEGETABLES – fresh vegetables can be chopped or sliced and sautéed in olive oil together or separately. The following vegetables can be added to the sauce after sautéing:

• Onion-red is preferred
• Pepper-red or green
• Tomatoes
• Mushrooms
• Spinach

Let the ingredients simmer in the sauce to blend flavors. Follow directions on pasta packaging and ladle sauce over pasta. To use the sauce for lasagna, make the sauce with only ground meat (can be ground Italian sausage not Italian sausage chunks).
