How to Make Spaghetti Sauce sorta scratch


  1. Brown ground beef and sausage, drain fat. Add the sauce and spices, simmer for 30 minutes on low. This is where I take out some sauce for my picky eater.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the veggies. Saute until tender. Drain any excess liquid and stir into the sauce. (I use any or all of the veggies, depending on what I have on hand.
  3. I always make it in a large batch so I can package it up and freeze it for another day or to make lasagna.
