Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

I got ambitious this weekend and decided to try my hand at making my own homemade spaghetti sauce. I'm one of those people who generally doesn't like spaghetti sauce because it can be bitter but this turned out so good that I had seconds.

  • 29 ounces of tomato sauce
  • 15 ounces of diced tomatoes in puree
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of Basil
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 16 ounces of Hot Jimmy Dean sausage
  • 4 ounces of Green Giant mushrooms


  1. Brown sausage in oil. Add onions and green pepper. Saute until onions and peppers are soft.

  2. Add garlic and mix well.
  3. Pour in tomato sauce and diced tomatoes.

  4. Add salt, pepper, Oregano, Basil, mushrooms and sugar.

  5. Simmer sauce on low for 30 minutes.

This sauce was really good. Love the big chunks of sausage as well.
