Super Easy Spaghetti Sauce

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


2-1/2 quarts

At my house, we never know how many we'll have for dinner. That's why this spaghetti sauce is one of my favorites - flavorful, filling and fast. Italian sausage gives it depth, and salsa adds the kick. —Bella Anderson, Chester, South Carolina
