Skillet Sunday: Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Homemade spaghetti sauce. 🍝 |

What you'll need:

~ 8 vine ripened tomatoes

-3/4 carton of cherry tomatoes

-fresh basil, cilantro, parsley, & thyme (about 1-2 TBSP each)

-chili powder

-Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

-Louisiana hot sauce,

-4-5 cloves of garlic

-1 small white onion

-2 TBSP brown sugar (cuts acidity)

-sea salt, oregano, and black peppercorn. 


Sauté onions and garlic in EVOO, then add meat. Brown 1lb ground sirloin (or turkey) in EVOO. Blend/pulse the sauce ingredients together in a processor, then pour over the browned meat. Cover and let simmer for at least 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. (40 minutes+ will give it more flavor, so I recommend simmering longer.). Prepare whatever pasta you prefer while your sauce simmers, then serve and enjoy! You can top with fresh grated parmesean, basil, & peppercorn if you like!

This sauce pairs well with Zoodles too! I typically use a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles with our sauce since it's a good, tasty way to sneak in extra vegetables into your meal. If you want to serve with Zoodles, spiralizer a zucchini (one small zucchini per person), the sautee in large pan with a small amount of EVOO, fresh herbs, and seasonings of your choosing, until al dente. 🍝🍝🍝 

Option 1: with pasta

This is also an incredible sauce to pair with Zoodles! (Spiralized zucchini noodles.)
