Very Tomatoey Spaghetti Sauce

    1 hour 25 minutes

    This is a great standby pasta sauce which can be frozen and used as needed. Always terrific for lasagne, and very simple to make.

    I have made this recipe twice already. It needs alot longer then an hour to simmer. It took 3 hours this last time to get it to a thick enough consistency. Other changes: Used ground turkey instead of beef. Added some parsley and oregano. Other than that, I absolutely adore this recipe and will be using it as 'my' spaghetti sauce recipe.  -  25 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    A simple, tasty sauce. I added Italian spice, used ground turkey, and replaced the tomato sauce with a can of stewed tomatoes and a can of tomato paste.  -  26 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
