Today we are going to share our Weeknight Spaghetti Meat Sauce recipe with you! Yes, you can buy some in a jar or a can and add ground beef to it. But I really like to make my own. I like to know what all goes in it and what my family is eating. It also makes the house smell really good so that’s an added bonus. I think the longest part of this recipe is just slicing or chopping up all of the ingredients to go in it. I like to cut everything up really small (smaller that what we did here) so my kids don’t pick around everything. Just follow the easy steps below to make your own delicious sauce.
