I have made this simple recipe so many times (every time the Hubster calls randomly on his way home & says he feels like spaghetti & meat sauce for dinner) that I figure I should give it its due review. It's so easy & hard to screw up, but also very easy to make even better! I add 2 cloves minced garlic to the meat mixture during browning, sprinkle italian seasoning or dried basil depending on which sauce I am using, or add fresh herbs if I have them. You can use any flavor sauce you like, which is a bonus. Always a good go-to recipe! :)

It's spaghetti out of a jar. I guess I personally wouldn't call this a "recipe". Doesn't taste bad and it's fine for a dinner but still, it's a jar of sauce.

I've always made my sauce like this, but usually add fresh minced garlic. Great basic recipe & great for beginners!
