Grandma Augusta's Spaghetti Sauce Recipe
This was passed down from my late Grandma Augusta to my mother and now me. It's an Americanized take on a nice Italian meat sauce for spaghetti, loaded with meat, tomatoes and other good things. Enjoy!
I've been making this recipe for several yrs minus the bacon and wine bc I never have it. I also add 1 tsp of Cayanne pepper for some bit. Everyone who eats it LOVES it. Sometimes I add 1/2 burger and 1/2 Italian sausage. Always is a hit.
This is a great meaty pasta sauce recipe passed down through the generations from my great great grandfather in Sicily. I also use this sauce when I make my lasagna. I don't like large chunks of meat in my sauce, so I put it all in the food processor when done and it comes out as a very thick meaty sauce.
This dressed-up pasta sauce, made with lots of lean ground beef, onions, and mushrooms, contains a surprise ingredient -- coffee! Make plenty ahead of time, it gets richer after a day or two.
Enjoy this meaty pasta sauce over your favorite noodles.
Italian sausage, mushrooms, zucchini and green onions are sauteed with sherry for an alternative pasta sauce.
Ground beef meatballs are simmered with tomatoes, hot Italian sausage, and pork ribs to make this rich and hearty pasta sauce.
A long simmer of tomatoes with ground beef and pork is wonderfully flavored with mushrooms, rosemary, oregano, thyme and a generous measure of red wine. This versatile sauce can be used in your favorite pasta dishes.
Eggplant slices are dipped in egg and bread crumbs and then baked, instead of fried. The slices are layered with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
