Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Recipe



  • 1 pound spicy Italian sausage
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
  • 12 ounces tomato paste
  • 15 ounce can diced fire roasted tomatoes
  • 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth


  1. In a large pot or pan, add in the sausage and beef over medium-high heat. Use a spoon to break up the meat into small pieces. Add in the onion and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until the meat is browned and no pink remains. Drain off fat. 
  2. Reduce heat to medium; add in the sugar, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and parsley. Add in the tomato paste and stir to combine.
  3. Pour in the diced tomatoes with their liquid, crushed tomatoes, and chicken broth. Stir well until combined; bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and simmer for at least 1 hour (ideally 4)
  4. Use right away, refrigerate for later, or freeze for down the road!
