homemade spaghetti sauce:: recipe

cooking is something that i really enjoy doing. when it comes to eating and cooking i try to eat as naturally and organically as possible as well as eating locally grown produce. this means that i try to cook everything that i can from scratch.
spaghetti sauce is one thing that is so easy and you can make in a huge batch and freeze it. 
here is my recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce

2 jar grandmas canned tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
10 mushrooms
1 onion
2 small zucchini
2 carrots
2 peppers
4 stalks celery
5-6 cloves of garlic
red pepper flakes

chop up the veggies and saute with garlic
pour in the canned tomatoes and tomato sauce
add in parsley, oregano, basil, pepper flakes and pepper. 
bring to a light boil then turn it down to simmer for an hour
ladle sauce into a blender (make use the blender lid is on tight because the sauce is still very hot// i may be speaking from experience, maybe)
pour into containers and freeze for future use

when making spaghetti i like to add lentils or chickpeas to the sauce or you can also add fresh veggies when warming up the sauce for more texture
for clint i will brown up some beef and add it in




  1. yummy! we try to eat very little processed foods too. this is a perfect alternative to store sauce because it doesn't have added sugar. love it! pinning!
