The Best Spagetti Sauce

I got this recipe from a friend, CVS ( not the store).  Before I always used canned spaghetti sauce.  .84c a can was worth not making it. Until he came over and made this!! Now I use it in everything. Spaghetti, lasagna, chicken Parmesan, pizza, anything you would use tomato sauce in. There is just one thing I do differently and that is add sausage seasoning to the ground beef. The best seasoning I have ever had I can only find in Florida. I can't find it in any of the stores around here. The brand is Legg's  and one package seasons 25 pounds of meat. So I just dump it into a jar and measure out what I need.


Spaghetti Sauce

1 pound of ground beef
2 3/4 tsp sausage seasoning
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 4oz can of mushrooms, do not drain  ( I use stems and pieces)
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 6oz can of tomato paste
1 14.5oz can of crushed or diced tomatoes
1 can of water ( I use the tomato sauce can)
1 Tbsp garlic salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp basil
1 tsp dill weed
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp vegetable oil


Mix sausage seasoning with ground beef. In  a sauce pan, over med-high heat, brown meat. Do not drain. In a separate pan, with oil, cook onion and green pepper until slightly brown. Add to meat. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for at least half an hour. Stirring occasionally.

  1. This sauce is AWESOME! I remember that one time you forgot to put the meat in it, and it was still delicious.

    CVS, thanks for sharing the recipe.

    1. It's great with beef too! Just mix it in before you brown the beef and you get that extra lip-smacking goodness!

    2. Thanks,Christina! The seasoning works good with beef and turkey too. My mom makes the best turkey sausage with that seasoning!
