Full of delicious flavor and simmered low and slow this Homemade Spaghetti Sauce is easy, tasty and filling. A recipe that works for multiple different dishes
Letting this sauce simmer low and slow really lets the flavors marry together and when it’s done you have a big pot of heaven. This makes a large batch that is easy to freeze and reheat so you always have some on hand when your spaghetti craving calls.
In a large pot or dutch oven add your ground beef and Italian sausage and brown until no longer pink (you can drain if you like, we do not drain ours)
Next add in your chopped onion and sauté until it is tender and translucent.
Lastly add in your garlic, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, spices, sugars, and balsamic vinegar. Give it a good stir and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer about 3-4 hours
Freeze any remaining spaghetti sauce that you do not use and place in a ziploc bag and toss in the freezer. This will keep for up to a year, but the best quality is to use it within 4-6 months. You can also refrigerate it for about 5-10 days.
