Spaghetti with Homemade Sauce

I used to buy jarred sauce at Aldi for $0.99 until I found this recipe. I found it when I made homemade manicotti and thought it was the most delicious sauce ever. Since homemade manicotti takes a loooong time to make, we usually just make the sauce and have spaghetti. If I get really motivated, I will make the manicotti and post if for you to try, too! This sauce costs about $0.90 to make before adding meat.

12 oz spaghetti (1/3 of Aldi spaghetti box) ($0.45)
1 lb sausage (or turkey sausage) ($1.99)
chopped onion
1/2 clove minced garlic
2 8-oz cans tomato sauce ($0.50)
1 6-oz can tomato paste ($0.40)
1 tsp brown sugar
1 Tbl parsley
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
dash pepper
dash bay leaves
  • The sauce tastes better if you make it a half - hour ahead of time, but this is not necessary!
  • Brown meat and drain and return to pan.
  • Add onion, garlic, tomato sauce, tomato paste, brown sugar, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, and bay leaves.
  • Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low, partially cover and cook 30 minutes
  • Boil spaghetti according to package. Break into smaller pieces before adding to water. Drain.
  • Combine sauce and spaghetti.
