SPAGHETTI WITH MEAT SAUCE

This Spaghetti with meat sauce is easy and delicious.

My family loves any kind of pasta and this meat sauce is one of our favorites.  Add a salad and bread for a great meal.  This makes a delicious weeknight meal or serve it to family and guests anytime for raves on how good it is.  This sauce keeps in the refrigerator several days and can easily be reheated.  You could cut this recipe in half if you want to make less sauce or even double it for more.  I see no reason why you could not freeze this sauce and have it for anytime you wanted spaghetti.

Spaghetti with meat sauce ingredients.

1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey

1 onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilis

2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce

1 (13.25 ounce) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained

1 teaspoon minced garlic

3 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon sugar

Salt to taste

Parmesan cheese, optional

Brown ground beef, onion, and green pepper.  Drain.  Add remaining ingredients except parmesan cheese and simmer about 45 minutes.  Serve over spaghetti cooked according to package directions.  Makes enough sauce for approximately 6 servings.  Can top with parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!

This could be made in the crock pot as well. Just brown your meat with your onions and peppers, then add to slow cooker.

  3. What would be the best way to add fresh mushrooms instead of canned?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Maybe add 15 to 20 minutes before the sauce is done, Ann.
