Homemade Spaghetti/Pasta Sauce

READY IN: 7hrs 20mins
Recipe by steven123

This is an outstanding recipe. I usually just buy Prego but thought it would be fun to make from scratch. Will never buy Prego again. The only thing I did different is I could not find fresh basil so I used dried. Next time I will use everything fresh. The flavor was amazing. My husband was very happy. This makes a huge pot so froze 2 separate portions to use at a later date. Can't wait!!!

This is a good base for pasta sauce. I added more of the spices and a pound of Italian sausage. I only made 1/2 of the recipe and got about 6 cups of sauce. It was very thick and rich and tasted great. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2011.
