Recipe: Spaghetti Sauce

I am sure we all have our favorite spaghetti sauces and are really happy with them. However if you are looking for a change and want to try an easy spaghetti sauce that is also very delicious, please give this one a go.

I love how I can throw everything together in my La Crueset, turn the heat to simmer and leave it for a couple of hours to cook. Then all I have to do is make some gluten-free pasta.

[print_this]Recipe: Spaghetti Sauce

Package of lean ground beef
½-1 onion finely chopped
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
2 cups water
2 tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp dried oregano, basil, and parsley
½-1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 bay leaves
½ tsp chili powder
Salt and pepper

I use a La Crueset pot when I am making this sauce. I can throw everything in, put the lid on and leave it on the stove for hours.

In your pot, turn heat to medium. Add hamburger(*), tomato paste, tomato sauce, water and stir and cook for 10 minutes.

Turn heat to simmer and add all spices, sugar, garlic, bay leaves, and chili powder.

Simmer for 2 hours.

*do not brown hamburger in pot. Let it cook in the liquids.

Once sauce is done, all you have to do is make some gluten free pasta of your choice. This day I used spirals. Enjoy![/print_this]

  1. A friend of mine needs a delicious gluten free / dairy free recipe to bring it as a snack treat for her kindergarten class. Suggestions?

  2. Hi Alyssa-try my sugar cookie recipe but substitute the butter with the new vegan, gluten free Becel Margarine that is available in stores.
    You can make the cookies quite small for the little kids.

  3. You can also make caramel popcorn again substituting the butter with vegan margarine. Use brown paper lunch bags as individual popcorn bags for the kids.

  4. Carrie – I made this sauce in my new Le Creuset and it turned out great! I used ground alpaca meat from the Millerville Famers Market instead of beef – yum!
