Okay this is the easy version of my almost famous spaghetti sauce. It use to take me all day to make the original version. The process was long and I could never get constant results. When I was working I didn’t have the time to spend 8 hours to make a sauce.
This is a simpler version using a consistent tomato product. (Please note I have not been given or sponsored by the company that makes the products I use.) I am sharing the product because it is part of what makes it work.
1 box Pomi Chopped Tomatoes
1 box Pomi strained Tomatoes
1 8oz can Contadina or Publix store brand tomato paste
1lb 80-90% lean ground round
1lb ground pork (I have also used lamb)
Spices to taste:
2 to 3 Bay Leaves depending on size
Dalmatian Rubbed Sage
JM Exotic Bread Dip Garlic Rosemary mix
Brown ground beef and pork or lamb drain as necessary add tomato products and spices.
I like a thicker sauce so I let my sauce simmer until thicker. If for some reason your sauce is too acidic add a teaspoon of sugar to taste. Once you add the sugar let simmer a few minutes then taste again.
This is a really great sauce to make ahead of time and freeze. This is also the sauce that I use for lasagna. I let it simmer a bit longer for lasagna.
