I started making fresh spaghetti sauce when my wife was sick with cancer and the Venezuelan doctor put her on a diet which included no canned goods. I have since doctored it up until I have gotten it to this point. Serve over spaghetti and add Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Instructions Checklist

  • Combine quartered tomatoes, chunked onion, bell pepper, water, vinegar, garlic cloves, Worcestershire sauce, basil, oregano, parsley, cilantro, paprika, soy sauce, hot sauce, brown sugar, and salt in a blender; blend sauce to desired thickness. Add more water if a thinner sauce is desired.

  • Pour sauce onto ground beef; cover and cook until the sauce reaches desired consistency, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Dried hot chile peppers can be substituted for hot pepper sauce.

Sauce can be blended together beforehand and refrigerated, allowing the flavors more time to mix together.

This was easy and quick to make and it turned out very tasty. Even though the ingredients list seems long it really isn't since a lot of them are repeated. Good recipe. Read More

I have never made spaghetti sauce before and this one was quick, easy and delicious. The only adaptation I made was that I did not add the meat to the sauce. I just added the Cumin to the vegetables and made meatballs on the side. I also did not add the hot sauce as we do not like it, but it still packed a good punch. With early prep, I threw it together start to finish in about 20 minutes. I will be making it again. Read More
