the best tasting spaghetti sauce

classico.jpgI just discovered a product that makes my spaghetti and pizza sauces better than ever. Sun-dried tomato pesto by Classico.

Here’s my sauce recipe for spaghetti or lasagne.

1 pound ground sausage
1 pound ground chuck or beef
1 medium size sweet onion, chopped
several garlic cloves, crushed
Three 15 ounce cans tomato sauce
6 oz can of tomato paste
10 oz jar of sun-dried tomato pesto by Classico
salt and pepper to taste
rosemary, thyme, basil to taste
brown sugar to taste

Brown the sausage and beef together. When it’s almost done, add onion and cook until meats are brown and onion is soft. Remove the grease and add the crushed garlic and cook for about a minute. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste and pesto and stir until well blended. Sprinkle spices and sugar. Let simmer for at least an hour, stirring every once in awhile. Let the steam escape so the sauce will reduce.

    I usually find the typical sauce too tomatoie (sp). I’m now wondering if it is the tomatoe taste or the oregano/basil. Ever use beef stock in spaghetti sauce?

    I’ve never used beef stock in spaghetti sauce. I don’t like very much oregano; it can get strong and overpowering pretty quick. If you’re making homemade sauce from canned sauce, it can be too “tomatoie” as you call it, if you don’t simmer it long enough or don’t add a good combo of spices/veggies and meat. ~Guinever
