Homemade Meatless Spaghetti Sauce
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 3-1/4 hours
I make this several times during tomato season and can it for use in the winter. This is the best spaghetti sauce recipe I have found.
A nice slow simmer reduces this recipe to a wonderful thick sauce. I love the addition of the brown sugar. It helps reduce the acid build up that can occur with these types of homemade sauces. I used fresh summer tomatoes. I too reduced the amount of salt due to dietary needs. TOH * VFEditor
I made this last week and we liked it. I cut the salt down to 1 tsp. because we are salt conscious and I didn't have fresh garlic so I used a couple tsp. of dried minced garlic from a jar. I ended up canning the sauce because my freezers are full and I got 6 and a half pints. I also pureed it before I put it in the jars. Looks wonderful. I definitely will make it again.
I make this every year with the tomatoes from my garden and have tomato sauce all year long. It is great.
This is way too sweet for our taste, fairly bland as well. Great use for garden tomatoes, but still searching for a secret ingredient that can give this some flavor and something to take away the sweetness. Very disappointed.
Best sauce I ever made!!!
Excellent! I added fresh basil & doubled the garlic.
This sauce is sweeter than I like. Of course, next time I can reduce the sugar but does anyone have any idea what I can do for this completed batch to reduce the sweet taste?
This is a great sauce! I used two different types of garden fresh tomatoes and loved the flavors. I also cut the recipe into thirds and made a third of the recipe and it worked great-just reduce the cooking times by a third too!
