This will show you the way to make your own tomato based spaghetti sauce that includes meat. You can also leave out the meat ingredients for a completely vegetarian meal.
Things You'll Need
- 28 oz can diced tomatoes
- 6 oz can tomato paste
- 1 lb hamburger or italian sausage (optional)
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 small onion (diced)
- 1 small green bell pepper (diced)
- 1/2 can mushrooms or 1/4 package fresh mushroom (diced)
- 1/8 cup brown sugar
Brown the meat of your choosing, and drain. If you want to leave the meat out, start with step two.
