2 (4 ounce) jars
1 (29 ounce) can
1 (6 ounce) can
salt and pepper to taste
Loved it. I didn't have some things, so I improvised. Used fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I didn't have green pepper,so I left it out. I took the advice of other reviews and cut the sugar down. I added two tablespoons at a time, and it tasted right after about 6 tablespoons of sugar. I will make this again.
Followed recommendations and cut the sugar (1/2 cup), but it was still too sweet. Also, I used fresh garlic because it's much more flavorful than the powder.
Might try this recipe again, but I'll add 2 TBS of sugar, wait 10 minutes and taste. Then I'll add 1 TBS of sugar and repeat till it tastes "just right".
I made this sauce tonight for my family. My husband always says that my spaghetti sauce is missing something and he isn't sure what...until I made this sauce! He tasted it and said that all it needed now was pasta! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I did use only 1/4 c. sugar; minced garlic; fresh oregano; and instead of the tomato sauce, I used a 28oz can of 'chunky crushed tomatos w/ basic, garlic and oregano plus one small can of plain tomato sauce and the tomato paste and a vermouth cooking wine.
This sauce was wonderful - I don't get the other reviews - why would you comment that the sauce was too sweet when the recipe is called Mom's SWEET Spaghetti Sauce - sheesh - this is terrific just the way it is - thanks Langston28
This is a good one...I used any left over wine.. Instead of just oregano I used Italian seasoning. Added 1 tbsp minced garlic. Decreased the sugar to 1/4 of a cup. And used 1/2 lb Italian sausauge instead of the bacon..I have been making this for years...Sooo yummy!
Love it, sugar amount was perfect, that is why it is called "Sweet" spaghetti. Sweet spaghetti has been in our family for many years, we use 2lbs beef and 1 cut of sugar --- hummy....
This was a great recipe, although I had to reduce the sugar to 2 Tbsp. I used fresh sliced mushrooms instead of the canned ones and added two tomatoes. Thanks!
I love this sauce, although i would say add sugar to taste. I think a 1/4 cup is plenty.
