Easy Spaghetti Sauce
It’s hard to imagine Italian cooking without an Easy Spaghetti Sauce. It has just eight ingredients, two of them are black pepper and salt, yet delivers a big flavor. This easy recipe features a rich blend of ground beef and tomatoes tossed with pasta and flavored with a generous amount of fresh torn basil. A good grating of Parmesan served on top is lovely and optional.
This spaghetti sauce is really simple. Start with the extra virgin olive oil. In a large saucepan, heat the oil and add the crushed garlic and chopped parsley. Then add the ground beef and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until the beef begins to dry up. Add the tomato passata and bring to a simmer. Simmer on low for about one hour. Once the sauce is ready, adjust seasonings to taste and add the basil. Serve tossed with pasta, and enjoy!
