About this recipe: An incredibly meaty tomato-based pasta sauce, which is simple to make. Serve over your favourite pasta and top with Parmesan cheese. This sauce is freezer-friendly.
This is exactly what it says it is, a very meat-tasting sauce. Do NOT expect a traditional/strong or fresh tomato flavor from this recipe. I should have known from the three bouillion and beef broth, but I never made spaghetti sauce before, so now I know. I love the simplicity of this recipe, but I would leave out the bouillion and the beef broth because I prefer spaghetti sauce with a strong/fresh tomato taste. I love that it's a thick sauce, so I think it's a good recipe, just not enough tomato flavor for me. I left out the pepperoni when I made this, and also used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. Thanks for sharing this recipe. - 11 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
THE BEST! I was making meatballs so I made this sauce without the meats. I basically followed the recipe; only changes I made were to add additional 1 tablespoon of minced garlic (as garlic lover), add additional 2 (15 oz) cans of tomato sauce (sauce was too thick), add 1 (28 oz) can of pureed tomatoes (sauce was too thick), add additional ½ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes (for extra heat), add 2 teaspoons of soy sauce (for flavor and deep color), replace honey for the sugar and add additional 1 tablespoon of honey (for little bit of sweetness). My husband and 8 other guests raved! Easy, simple and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe! - 07 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This definitely gets 5 stars! This is my new meat sauce recipe from now on. I do make some changes: I use italian turkey sausage instead of pork, I omit pepperoni, I use a pack of fresh mushrooms, 1 whole green bell pepper, 1 whole red bell pepper, add a small can of extra tomato sauce, and definitely more garlic. I freeze most of a batch and have super-quick dinners when I need it. - 01 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
