This homemade spaghetti sauce recipe is one my mother taught me to make, and I think it tastes really good. Unless you can find a good deal on name brand pasta sauces at the store, this is definitely a more cost effective way to feed your family. I also made the Italian Breadsticks to go with our dinner.
1/2 lb. hamburger
1 can tomato paste
3 cans tomato sauce
2 Tablespoons sugar
2-3 garlic cloves, pressed or chopped finely
2 teaspoons basil, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon oregano leaves, crumbled
parsley flakes, crumbled
garlic salt, a little to taste
3-4 Tablespoons water
Brown hamburger. Add sauces, spices, and water, then let simmer. Use fresh herbs to make it even better. Place sauce over spaghetti pasta.
