Best Spaghetti Sauce

Recommended Posts

2 garlic cloves
1 tsp dried basil
drizzle of olive oil
2 generous pinches of fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 lb. of ground beef
1 jar or 26 oz. can of tomato sauce (we use meat flavored Ragu)
1 pinch red pepper flakes

Brown the ground beef in a small frying pan. It is important to stop cooking as soon as it looks done as the meat will continue to cook more in the sauce later and you don't want it to be overdone.

Meanwhile, crush the garlic cloves and brown them in the bottom of a medium sized sauce pan. When the garlic beings to release its aroma, pour in the tomato sauce. Bring to a low boil and then reduce to a simmer.

While sauce is simmering, drain fat from beef. Then add beef to sauce. Add all remaining ingredients. I like to taste the sauce as I add ingredients to make sure it is the right balance of flavors. If the sauce is too sweet, add more basil. If it is not salty enough, add more cheese. Be careful with the pepper flakes, only a little goes a long way.

Simmer sauce for 5 minutes, or until your pasta is ready. Then enjoy!
