Depending on how much you need... this is what I make...
2 lg cans crushed tomatoes
2 lg cans pureed tomatoes
couple fresh cloves of garlic
Hot Italian Sausage browned
Pepperoni slices (for DH)
sugar to get rid of acidy taste , maybe teaspoon or 2
Cook for hours
I bag up and freeze in little sandwich bags. Usually eat off it two nights and freeze the rest.
2 cans Hunts - Traditional spaghetti sauce
1 sm. can Contadina tomato paste
1 lb. ground beef, chopped as it browns, & drained of grease
1 can mushroom slices (I actually prefer these to fresh in this type
1 t. minced garlic
2 T. sugar (more or less to taste)
1/2 t. minced onion
Brown ground beef in large pot, drain. Add sauces, mushrooms, & seasonings.
Simmer on low, stirring often, about 45 minutes.
What I like about making my own is how inexpensive it is and how much better it tastes than the jars. I may spend $10 (that is on the high end) but we get at least 10 meals out of it. We will eat a couple of nights and then freeze in bags and each bag is a meal, so $1 a meal for 3 is great!
