Recipe to make an easy meat sauce that is quick for when you don’t have the time to make a 100% homemade sauce.
I’ve never found a store bought meat sauce that I really liked. Seriously they say “meat flavored” and there isn’t much meat.
Here’s how you can turn a jar of store bought pasta sauce into a good meat sauce you’ll enjoy by adding meat (go figure!) and some spices.
Great for making spaghetti, lasagna, baked ziti, or whatever you want.
- 24oz jar of your favorite store bought spaghetti sauce
- ½ lbs ground beef
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp dried basil
- Brown the ground beef breaking it up into small pieces, Use a pan large enough to add the sauce later.
- Drain off excess fat
- Add the sauce , onion powder, garlic powder, and basil.
- Bring to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.
