Recipe: Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce


Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Groovy Guido Gravy

As I may have mentioned, I do love to cook and am always wanting to try new recipes. Well, after reviewing several different sauce recipes, I took apart many different techniques and concocted my own version of the Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce, which I have named: Groovy Guido Gravy

If you’re getting tired of the gravy that comes in a jar, then you are in luck! Once you start making your own sauce, you will never buy jarred stuff again. Not only does it taste better, but it makes so much more for what you would pay for a jar of sauce. Simply follow the recipe below to make your own Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce! And feel free to make any modifications you want, I did. That’s how I arrived at this formula.

Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Here are the simple ingredients to make your very own delicious gravy:

Original recipe makes 6 servings
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (8 ounce) bag of chopped onions and garlic combo (frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian Seasoning
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes


In a large pot, saute the onion and garlic combo. Then add the remaining ingredients and simmer over a low heat for at least 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning. If you would like to add meat, I would recommend browning some Italian Sweet Sausages and adding them to the pot whole or cut into thick slices.

Gravy is best the next day or having simmered for a few hours. Enjoy the Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce on the net!

    Hi Chris! I enjoy your web site! I love to cook to! We have to swap recipes! I make my own sauce too! I allow it to simmer all day in a large cast iron pot with a lid. After 4 or 5 hours I take the lid off. If you only have crushed tomatoes on hand – just brown the garlic with olive oil and butter, pour in the crushed tom, add a bit of sugar, small handful of dried basil, lots of pepper – yummy! I am going to try your way too! I love you my funny sweet big brother!
