My Grandmothers Famous Spaghetti Sauce

“This has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother, to me, and now to my children and their families. I never measure ingredients so I will do my best to give you ingredient proportions. Don't rush this one. Let it simmer and cook down for several hours. I use my food processor to do the chopping as there is a lot of it!Freezes great so I double, and sometimes triple, the recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Drain well. (I rinse my meat after browning to get as much grease off as possible.).
  2. Chop celery, bell pepper, onions and garlic in food processor or by hand.
  3. Add remaining olive oil and saute vegetables until tender over medium-high heat. Return meat to the pan.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and add enough water to make really watery or soupy. It will cook down. Add water as needed. Simmer about 4 to 6 hours until cooks down to proper consistency for sauce.
