And, my hubby (who usually doesn't really care for spaghetti) loves it. He begs for spaghetti for dinner quite frequently as a result of this sauce.
When we eat this sauce, we heat it to a low boil on the stove and add about 1/2 c. of parmesan cheese and 1 lb. of sausage or sausage/beef mix. It is so yummy!
105 oz. can of tomato sauce (I buy this for around $3 at Costco)
1/2 t. garlic powder or 2 cloves finely minced
1 T. dried onion flakes
1 T. salt
1 T. oregano
2 t. basil
1 t. pepper
If you are going to freeze this recipe - mix all of the ingredients together, pour into quart jars or bags, and freeze.
If you are going to can this recipe (my method of choice!)
- Mix all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.
- Sanitize and heat your jars, bring your lids to a boil, and bring the water in a water bath canner to a boil.
- Scoop spaghetti sauce into the jars, leaving 1 inch of head space, attach a lid with the band, and place in the boiling water bath canner. Repeat until you are out of spaghetti sauce.
- Boil for 40 minutes. When finished, remove jars to a towel to cool. Listen for the lids to pop - indicating that they are sealed. Eat any sauce that has not sealed within one week.
