this is a deviation of my mothers spaghetti sauce, except i think that this is better, cheaper, easier, and faster (don't tell my mom that though)
Step 1: Ingredients
This will cut the cost and you'll have stuff left over to make it again. I got almost everything from Costco.
- 2 large yellow onions
- 1 pack of ground meat
- 4 large Italian style sausages
- 1 jar of pasta sauce
- 2 cans of diced tomatoes
- a lot of garlic
- oil (i use olive oil but i don't think it matters much)
These are the mandatory ingredients
but i like to add:
- 2-3 large jalapenos peppers (pickled or fresh)
- 1/2-1 can of beer (i like to use Budweiser, but i used nicer beer this time)
- 2-3 bay leaves
- salt, pepper, paprika, Tabasco, anything else you like or have
I used ground turkey because it is cheaper then beef. if you have ground beef, pork, etc. use it instead. its a lot better then turkey. unless you are a health nut.
The sausage that i used is Italian. it comes in huge packages at Costco.
Caution... i used a very large pan, which a lot of people might not have and i filled it to the brim, so make sure you have something big to cook this in.
I use a jar of sauce because its a lot faster. i started making this sauce as a way to make this plain jar of sauce better. My mother's sauce is from scratch, but i think this is a lot easier, and if you buy the 3 packs from Costco, i think its really cheap. Its not any good by itself, unless you are in a big hurry to make dinner.
