Homemade Spaghetti

It must be a week for some new recipes!  Over the years I have tried making homemade spaghetti sauce and while most of them were “ok”, there were not really any that we cared to try again.  Well….that is until now!  I found a recipe for a spaghetti sauce mix in a cookbook I have and adjusted it (of course) to my liking.  We REALLY liked how it turned out!  I hope you enjoy it too!


  • Pasta of your choice
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 4 8-oz. cans tomato sauce (can use diced tomatoes or mixture of both to equal 1 quart)
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground sage

In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook pasta of your choice according to package directions.

To make sauce: In a large saucepan, brown ground beef, drain.  Add the tomato sauce and spices and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Serve sauce mixed into pasta or serve noodles and sauce separately.

Serve with Parmesan cheese and/or cheddar cheese on top.

  1. You really ought to consider whole wheat spaghetti noodles, organic if you can! I can get just regular whole wheat spaghetti at Walmart for about $1 where I live father north. The taste - mmmmmmmm and you fill up a lot faster, so you won't have to cook as much since they are so hearty. Same thing for lasagna! I see you order from Azure, so you can get them at a good price from them. Just a thought!
    1. I know the picture doesn't show it, but I do buy the whole wheat spaghetti at Walmart...the macaroni noodles, the egg noodles, etc. We love it and don't really notice that much difference. I haven't checked out the noodles at Azure yet..I'll have to do that..thanks!
