Spaghetti Sauce Notes

Why buy the glass jar sauces? This recipe is super easy, fast and tasty. The use of small amounts of redolent spices gives this sauce interesting overtones.

Ingredients
Serves / Yields

6-8 Servings

Preparation Instructions

Saute onion and garlic in oil, until onion is translucent.

Meanwhile, saute hamburger (or prepare as meatballs). Then flood with warm water and drain in a colander, to remove fat.

Add tomatoes, tomato paste, and all spices to the onion and garlic. Add the hamburger. Simmer to develop flavor. Serve over pasta noodles of choice.

Helpful Hints

To make meatballs, which have a wonderfully light texture, work about ½ cup of club soda into the ground meat for each pound just before cooking.

Yummy: I used fresh snipped parsley from the garden, and fresh garlic and dried onion flakes.

There's a lot of flexibility in this recipe. Very Very Good.
