Even though this yields a lot of sauce, i always freeze the majority so i can create a quick meal when i do not feel like cooking.

How to Make Mediterranean Spaghetti Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. There are 2 options for cooking this recipe. The first one for the not so picky eaters who like a chunky sauce, and the second one for the picky eaters.
  2. Begin by browning the ground beef. While beef is browning, cut up all onions in small
    cubes. Drain all fat. Add 2 tbs. of Olive oil, and add onions. Next cut up all peppers. When onions
    are cooked and somewhat light golden, add the peppers. While this is cooking cut up all
    tomatoes. Once the peppers have softened, you can add the tomatoes. Add all spices and
    spaghetti sauce and mushrooms. Cook for a minimum of 2 hours, best if cooked longer 4-6 hours.
  3. This option is for the picky eaters who do not like a chunky sauce. First brown the onions i a bit of olive oil. When brown, add the peppers. When the peppers are softened, add the tomatoes and spaghetti sauce. In the meantime brown the ground beef and make sure you drain all the fat (you will add this after you pure the sauce). Cook for about an hour and them pure with a hand blender. Add ground beef, all spices and mushrooms (optional). Cook for a minimum of 1 hours, best if cooked longer 2-3 hours.
  4. All spices can be adjusted to your taste.
