Best Ever Spaghetti Sauce


Welcome to Loaves and Dishes, I am so very glad that you are here.


Wow! Spaghetti Sauce! Pretty exciting, eh? Yep, I know. But the reality is that I need for you to know this sauce because it appears in other recipes too! Besides, if you are like me – you have probably spent many years buying pre-canned sauce thinking that making “from scratch” sauce is just too much work.


Honey, you have fooled yourself for too long. This sauce is easy and oh so delicious. It is ready in less than 30 minutes, can be made vegetarian/vegan friendly as well! The longer you allow it to simmer the richer it becomes though! You can even crock pot this bad boy – and come home to a delicious sauce ready to go on your noodles!


Mix up a batch today!!


Thank you so much for visiting

Recipe inspiration


This recipe was inspired by the sauce that I have watched my mother make for years. When I asked her for the recipe, she said, “oh, there isn’t one”. So, I did this one on my own from what I know is in hers.
