My Favorite Spaghetti Recipe

Aug 06, 2018

I love making Spaghetti, so I thought I'd share with you my favorite recipe! It's super easy and it turns out delicious!

After 21 Days of Prayer launched on Saturday, I did an Instagram live and made homemade spaghetti sauce. I was even able to use fresh tomatoes from a friend's garden! No worries if you don't have any fresh tomatoes, you can definitely use canned tomatoes for this sauce. Many of you have asked for the recipe so here it is! 😊

Disclaimer:  I am not a food blogger so there won't be many pretty pictures, I am just giving you the recipe. 😜 Also, for my friends from Italy, I am not Italian, this is not my grandmother’s recipe, I found it in a magazine and I've made a few changes. There are probably ways to improve it if so feel free to share your input in the comment section! 



Spaghetti Recipe 


1 pound bulk Italian sausage (1/2 mild, 1/2 hot)

1 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1  12-ounce can tomato paste

3  28-ounce cans Italian-style or plain crushed tomatoes in purée (or chop up fresh tomatoes for the same amount, about 10-12 tomatoes) 

2  cups water

4  teaspoon minced garlic (4 cloves)

4  bay leaves

2  tablespoon sugar

4  teaspoon dried basil leaves

2  teaspoon dried oregano leaves

4  tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

2  teaspoon salt

1 16-ounce package Spaghetti Noodles (Feel free to switch these out with Zucchini Noodles, Carrot Noodles, Squash Noodles, whatever you prefer!) 


In a large pot, cook and stir the Italian sausage and onions until the meat is brown; drain fat.

Add remaining ingredients, except the spaghetti.

Bring sauce to a boil reduce heat.

Partly cover, and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. (If desired, simmer in a Crockpot instead of a pot)

Plate your spaghetti noodles (or zoodles) and your sauce on top of them.

Don't miss a beat!
