My Favorite Spaghetti Sauce
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1 (14 oz) can stewed tomatoes
- 1 (6 oz) tomato paste
- 6 oz. water
- 1 (16 oz.) jar of pasta sauce ( I use Prego)
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- 1/2 cup grape jelly
Brown meat and crumble with a fork. Drain any fat. Stir in all the rest of the ingredients. Cook and simmer stirring every 15 minutes. Serve over pasta.
Aah-ha: This is a straight out of the pantry version. Be sure to add your favorite, mushrooms, green pepper, capers, olives…whatever you like and have on hand.
Also, the way I cook pasta, bring salted water to a rolling boil, add the pasta, (I use Angel Hair) stir, cover and remove from heat. In 10 minutes it will be ready. For a low-carb treat, serve it over baked spaghetti squash.
Love to all!
I think adding the onion soup mix is completely genius! What a wonderful way to add flavor!
I’d love a bowlful right now! 🙂
This is so very intriguing. Especially with the jelly!
Grape Jelly? I’m going to have to try this.
Thats about what we are having for dinner tonight! Wish I could come help you! ;D
Sounds tasty!!! We love Italian! Hope the move is going well!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed reading your archives and gettint to know you a bit through your blog. I look forward to reading your future posts. Your sauce looks wonderful. I’m always glad to have quick things I can make up in a hurry on a busy day.
Please don’t laugh when I tell you that I’m going to have to google spaghetti squash. Sigh.
This looks delicious. I have heard of the jelly as a secret ingredient to great sauce.
Love your Christmas look. I really AM behind if I’m just noticing it!!
Gnee — I made the Colorful Cranberry Barbecued Chicken — but used pork and it was delicious — just perfect for a busy evening. I used the crock pot and who says that diamonds are a girl’s best friend! No WAY! On a busy evening your crock pot is your best friend. I loved it that it was so simple to put together and flavorful. Because of the juices from the pork, you have to cook it awhile. My husband even asked me what was in the sauce. I served it over converted rice. Thanks for this keeper of a recipe. I mentioned it in my post today. This spaghetti sauce also looks like a very different and easy to put together. It is so hard to keep cooking while getting ready to move. Joni
I love to have recipes like this one on file for this busy time of year. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary
I’m so hungry. I’ll have to give that a try.
