Linda’s EZ Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

You will need:

  • Large pot or crock pot
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano or Italian spice
  • 1 large jar of your favorite brand of spaghetti sauce


Brown meat and onions together. Slowly add spaghetti sauce and seasonings. Simmer for 2 hours (or use low in crock pot for 4-5 hours) stirring and tasting occasionally. Add more spices if wanted.

Serve over spaghetti or any type noodles when done. Don’t forget the Parmesan and garlic bread and enjoy!

Tip: If you don’t want to experiment with spices, use an envelope of pre-seasoned spaghetti sauce mix … just don’t add water!
