Spaghetti Sauce Recipes

Nearly every family in North America eats spaghetti, so it is not surprising at how many spaghetti sauce recipes there are out there. Some are a family secret that are handed down to new generations, while others are eagerly shared with friends and family members so that everyone has a chance to enjoy it. Did your mom have a favorite spaghetti sauce recipe? Perhaps you should ask her, if you remember enjoying it as a child.

Spaghetti sauce recipes vary throughout the United States, and throughout the world. Every restaurant and every home seems to have a favorite recipe, and sometimes these recipes are highly guarded secrets. The great thing about spaghetti sauce recipes is that some are easy and simple, and others are complicated. You can make one to suit your mood. If you aren’t much of a cook, your favorite sauce recipe might be simply opening a jar of Prego, and that’s all right too.

For those who are new to making spaghetti sauce, start yourself off easy with a premade spaghetti sauce and then add in additional ingredients. This way you know it will taste great, and once you are more comfortable with cooking you can do what all Italians do and start with the basics. Soon you will be a spaghetti sauce master and everyone will be bugging you for your secret recipe. It is up to you whether you share it with them or keep it a secret.

What type of spaghetti sauce recipes you may like will depend on your taste. Some sauces are thick and smooth, while others are chunky and spicy. Personally, I can’t stand chunks of tomato in my sauce, thanks to a childhood trauma, and I won’t eat a sauce that has chunks. The less complicated the spaghetti sauce recipe is, the more I like it. On the other hand, if you love chucks of veggies in your sauce, you want to look for a recipe that calls for a lot of slicing and dicing of fresh veggies and spices.

If you remember your mothers home cooking fondly, go ahead and ask her for her favorite spaghetti sauce recipes, and have a go at recreating them. You may even want to add your own special touches to make the sauce your own. A good sauce is one that you can easily make, tastes great, and pleases your whole family. If that means opening a jar, then so be it. No one can complain if they don’t know, right?
