This is family favorite sauce. It cooks on the stove a couple of hours and makes the kitchen smell delicious. It is thick and filling, just add a salad and slice of garlic bread for a complete meal. If I am in a rush, I use frozen chopped onion and fresh garlic in a jar. Note: you can vary the size cans of tomatoes and sauce to your taste.

We loved the addition of the beef consomme to the sauce it did give it a richer taste! I used ground turkey instead of beef and since I needed a shorter cooking time I didn't add any water to the sauce. This was easy and so delicious!!! Thank you Jan

This is very good spaghetti sauce and it sure did make the kitchen smell wonderful. I would leave the consomme out next time (just a personal flavor preference). The sauce was a bit watery but without the consomme it should be thicker. Made for ZWT7 by one of the Vivacious Violets.

I love the taste of this spaghetti sauce. I used 1 small can of tomato paste. I used only 1 can of tomato sauce but I don't know how much ounces it was (maybe near 14). And used 1 tbs of beef granules with 1 cup water. It's delicious and easy. Thanks Jan. Made for 123 hit wonders.
