With tomatoes so good and cheap (or your garden overflowing with them!) it’s fun to come up with recipes that are freezable. Each year my friend, Tina, makes spaghetti sauce. She makes a huge batch and then puts them into freezer ziploc bags in portions that her family will eat. Then she lays them flat and freezes them.
It’s an awesome way to not only get great homemade spaghetti sauce but always have it on hand. Let’s face it in a pickle spaghetti is an easy and frugal dish. Our family can never eat the whole jar of sauce so I always end up freezing some. Here’s her fab recipe:
- 1 1/2 lb. ground beef
- 2-16 oz can diced tomatoes (or 4 c chopped)
- 1 can tomato soup
- 1 lg can tomato paste (12 oz)
- 1 lg onion, chopped
- 2 tsp oregano
- 2 tsp basil
- 2 small bay leaves
- 1 tsp Worcestershire
- s & p to taste
- Cook ground beef and onion, drain.
- Add remaining ingredients and simmer (or low/med slow-cooker) for several hours.
