Small number of ingredients, big taste...what an amazingly quick and delicious recipe! I didn't have the time or the patience to bother with an other spaghetti sauce recipe with a million ingredients that took over an hour to prep & cook. I read the measurements wrong and added a 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder, oregano, basil, parsley, paprika, and forgot to add the bay leaf, and it still came out quite good. I just popped all the ingredients in and let it simmer for 15 mins. At first it was a tad sweet because of the brown sugar, but I added half of a freshly squeezed lemon to the sauce, let it simmer for another 10 mins. and it was perfect. I loved the explosion of flavor, so i think i'll stick to the more generous measurements from now on. This is an AMAZING recipe that tastes better than any bottled spaghetti sauce I've ever had!
Truly an easy and delicious spaghetti sauce recipe! I have made this countless times in the past several years, yet have forgotten to write a review for it. I use it with spaghetti, meatball subs (turkey meatball subs!), chicken parmigiana, you name it! I always keep the ingredients on hand, as this recipe is the perfect go-to sauce! I've successfully made it in the crock pot for meatballs and it comes out delicious without trying. I have tried different variations, but I do cut the brown sugar by half---it's just too sweet for our tastes with the recommended sugar in the recipe. I've also used Stevia in place of the brown sugar and it has turned out well. I've also subbed out onion powder for the chopped onions for those days in which I'm just too busy to bother. No matter what, this sauce is always a winner! For subs, I like to add a little grated Parmesan to the sauce and it makes it that much better. Thank you for this keeper of a recipe!
This was SOOOO yummy! I didn't have 2 cans of tomato sauce, so I used one can tomato sauce, I can crushed tomatoes and added some ground beef I browned with the same spices... Oh, yeah, I also used Italian spice mix instead of the basil and oregano, and my family cleaned their plates. Will NEVER buy spaghetti sauce again. Thanks Junebug!

I am a wife, Mother and Grandmother. I am a native Texan and can't imagine living anywhere else. My Grandmother taught me to cook before I could see the top of the counter. I remember standing on a stool in her kitchen learning to make pancakes. My Mother loved to cook and it seems she was cooking (or cleaning) most of the time. So those are the two ladies responsible for nurturing my love of cooking! <a href="http://s245.photobucket.com/albums/gg77/monji74/?action=view¤t=groupie1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/gg77/monji74/groupie1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As you can see I cook and review recipes more than I post them. That's because I am a pinch of this and a dollop of that cook and it's hard to put those recipes down on paper. <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
