    Baking Barb's Note:

    I have always hated tomato based sauces (even ketchup) until my neighbor had us over for dinner and served this. Makes a huge batch so I generally use half for spaghetti and then make lasagna's with the rest.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat olive oil over medium low heat and sauté onion until soft and just starting to caramelize. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 more minutes.
    2. 2
      Add meat and stir to break up slightly - no need to cook through.
    3. 3
      Add remaining ingredients and stir constantly for 5 minutes to break up the meat more thoroughly.
    4. 4
      Cook over low heat for 4-6 hours stirring every 15 minutes the first hour and then once or twice an hour after that.
    5. 5
      Add additional salt to taste - I have also added extra dried Italian herbs, garlic and onion powder to punch up those flavors.

      This was a pretty good tasting and fairly easy sauce to make. It doesn't have the traditional taste that I am used to in a pasta sauce, but my family really did enjoy this in the lasagna I used it in. I used this recipe with Baking*Belle's recipe for Garfield's Lasagna which I just added the vegetables in that recipe to at the end. I followed the ingredient list precisely and then started to cook this on the stove-top as indicated and switched it to a crock pot for the 6 hour simmer time. I had enough sauce for two meals, so the second half of the batch is waiting in the freezer for a hectic night. Thank you for a great sauce Baking Barb! Made for PAC Spring 2014.
