A hot bowl of spaghetti is the ultimate comfort food. And we all know that the sauce is what makes it! This spaghetti sauce recipe is one that rivals Olive Garden’s sauce. It uses some ready made Prego sauce, but it’s doctored up to be even more delicious! It has some unusual ingredients, but trust me. It’s AWESOME!
1 ½ lbs. ground beef ½ lb. mild Italian sausage 1 large can Italian style, stewed tomatoes 6 oz. V-8 juice 1 jar Prego spaghetti sauce 1 envelope dry onion soup mix ½ c. grape jelly (I know it sounds weird, but trust me!)
Brown beef and sausage together. Drain off fat. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer uncovered about 15-20 minutes.
I don’t know about your stove, but mine is a pain to clean. I have found it helpful to use a “Splatter Screen Cover” to put over top of my pot while the sauce simmers. It allows the steam to escape so the sauce can thicken, but at the same time, it minimizes the splattering all over my stove!
Serve over hot cooked pasta. (Better make more than you think you’ll need. Everybody will want seconds!)
