Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

Get in on my famous Italian family’s recipe for homemade spaghetti meat sauce that is hands down the best Ragu around.

Spaghetti sauce is one of those staple Italian family recipes passed down from generation to generation.


– olive oil – white onions – garlic – cabernet sauvignon – loose mild Italian sausage

Add the olive oil to a very large pot over low heat and cook the onions until they are deep brown and caramelized, which takes about 30 minutes.

Add in the garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes. Deglaze with red wine and cook until the amount of liquid is reduced by one-half, about 5-7 minutes.

Place  in the sausage and ground sirloin and cook over medium heat until it is  cooked throughout. There should be no pink while stirring often to  break up any large chunks.

While the meat is cooking, crush the whole peeled tomatoes with your hands to bite size pieces. Put in the tomatoes, oregano, and basil and cook over low heat for 30 minutes.

Finish by stirring in the cheeses, parsley, and balsamic vinegar and adjusting the seasonings with salt and pepper as well as sugar, if needed.
