Easy Spaghetti Meat Sauce

Spaghetti Meat Sauce

This rich, flavorful spaghetti meat sauce tastes as if you’ve been slaving on it for hours, but it’s easy to make and it’s ready in about half an hour. Make sure you use a high-quality marinara sauce – it will obviously have a big impact on the final result. My favorite prepared spaghetti sauce is Rao’s – its list of ingredients is very clean and it contains no added sugar. I especially like the spicy arrabiata sauce.

You can obviously serve this spaghetti meat sauce over pasta. Other options include cooked spaghetti squash or shirataki noodles.
