1. Buying the ingredients
Ingredients for Spaghetti Recipe:
- 2 small onions
- 1 pound ground beef (or 1/2 lb ground sausage and 1/2 lb ground beef)
- salt and ground black pepper
- 15 ounces tomato sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup water
- olive oil
- parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (optional)
- spaghetti noodles
2. Preparation of ingredients to make Pasta noodles
Step 1: Ground beef washed, minced, put in a marinade bowl: ½ teaspoon seasoning powder, 1 teaspoon sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, a little salt and pepper, and stir well.
Step 2: Wash the tomatoes, cut them in half, remove the seeds, and put them in a blender to puree. Onions peeled, washed, chopped
3. Cook Pasta
Step 1: Bring a pot of water to boil
Step 2: Add salt and cook pasta for about two minutes or until tender but not mushy
Step 3: Drain the cooking liquid, reserving one cup in case further instructions are needed.
Step 4: Return the drained pasta to the pan with butter or olive oil. Toss gently so that each piece is coated with sauce
Step 5: The spaghetti is cooked for five minutes, then drained in a colander and rinsed to stop the noodles from sticking together. Cover loosely with foil and allow it to sit off heat while you prepare your meatballs, sauteed vegetables (or whatever other toppings)
4. Make Spaghetti Sauce
Spaghetti sauce is an indispensable part of the Spaghetti recipe. We optional use a can of crushed tomatoes, some garlic cloves (crushed), dried basil leaves, olive oil, salt and pepper. We simmer this on low heat for at least 15 minutes with 1/2 cup water mixed in until it has thickened up to where you could spoon it onto your spaghetti instead of pouring it over the top. This is my favorite way to make a homemade pasta sauce because not only does it taste great but there are no preservatives or added sugars! Simply, grated parmesan cheese adds any spices before cooking that you want for more flavor such as oregano, thyme, or cayenne pepper. In order to avoid food poisoning from bacteria
Step 1: Cook carrots, onions, and garlic
Put one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan or saucepan. Cook over medium/medium-high heat until only light color remains. Add minced onion, garlic, and grated carrot. Cook and stir frequently for 5 minutes or so.
Step 2: Add tomatoes, water, and Italian seasoning
Then, add the crushed tomatoes and a bit of water (about 1/2 cup). Season with kosher salt and ground black pepper to your liking. Stir-fry the dried oregano leaves, paprika, and fresh herbs (basil and parsley).
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low.
Step 3: Simmer cooking till nice and ready
Cover and let the sauce simmer for 10 to 15 minutes (We like to check the sauce from time to time to stir or add a little more of my cooking noodles if needed).
You will end up with a delicious spaghetti sauce of perfect thickness. Add a dash of fresh basil or parsley if you have some leftovers.
Step 4: Add pasta & serve
If you are after the best tasting pasta, add your just-cooked pasta to the spaghetti sauce and cook for another 3 minutes or so to allow the pasta to absorb the flavors and goodness of the sauce!
5. Meat Sauce (Optional)
A meatless pasta sauce is super versatile, that is why we optional make it. But it is easy to turn this into a hearty spaghetti meat sauce with very little effort.
You will need about 1 lb of ground meat of your meat sauce (ground beef, chicken, turkey, or Italian sauce).
Meat sauce can replace tomato sauce for spaghetti recipe
Steps of making meat sauce
- Heat a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. Add in your ground meat and cook over sim heat, tossing regularly, until fully browned. Drain the meat and transfer to a plate for now.
- While, braiser or pot, saute the onions, garlic, and carrots for 3 minutes in a little bit of extra olive oil.
- Add the cooked ground meat back to the pot, and toss to combine.
- Add the water, tomatoes, and other seasons per spaghetti recipe. Bring to a boil.
- Turn heat down smallest and let the sauce simmer for about 15 minutes. Check-in from time to time and add a little water (or your pasta cooking water), if you need to.
6. Marinara Sauce (optional)
Marinara sauce is the same thing as a pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce (such as tomato sauce and meat sauce). It is a tomato-based sauce made with tomatoes, garlic, herbs ingredients, and onions. The Marinara sauce originated in Italy and is used in many Italian-American dishes like Chicken Parmesan or Spaghetti and Meatballs.
Making Marinara Sauce:
- Place a large pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Add diced onions and saute until soft (3 minutes), then stir with garlic for 2 minutes until fragrant well.
- Add tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer partially covered for 10 minutes.
- Stir the sauce in chopped fresh basil and remove sauce from heat.
7. Serve Spaghetti to disc and enjoy
Divide the spaghetti noodles into 4 plates and pour the tomato sauce over, grated parmesan cheese add a few stalks of coriander to decorate the plate of noodles more attractive and delicious. So there is a delicious minced beef tomato sauce pasta dish prepared for the family's weekend breakfast.
What are the best methods for saving spaghetti sauce leftovers?
One great way to store spaghetti sauce is in these glass jars. I also like to throw in a teaspoon of erythritol for sweetness. The best part about this method, though, is that it's really easy to vacuum seal and store the sauce without having it slow down or get freezer burnt.
An alternate technique you can use if you don't have one of these jars is making a day before you want to eat the spaghetti sauce, making sure there are no air pockets inside where they will prevent removal from plastic wrap, placing the plastic wrap in between two folded paper towels (to stop any leakage) and folding tightly closed then transferring into your jar so that when opened later the perfect amount will come out each time but
Can I use canned tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes for spaghetti sauce?
Yields may vary, but canned tomatoes can taste very similar to fresh ones and still work for tomato sauce. Canned tomatoes are available year-round and are more convenient. This is up to personal preference because some people feel canned is too much of processed food, whereas other people don't want the hassle of slicing open all those fresh tomatoes! It's maddening either way.
Use caution when using whole or ground beef that contains additives due to the risk of contamination from bacteria. Check with a reputable company for your next purchase to ensure quality control practices are in place for food safety such as testing their product against established shelf-life requirements and verifying Hazard Analysis Critical Point (HACCP). Some companies use one facility
