If there is one meal I could legit eat over and over and it never get old, it would be Homemade Spaghetti Sauce with angel hair pasta. Even though this is your traditional spaghetti, it has a little southern spicy kick that leaves you wanting more. I feel like spaghetti will always be one of those meals that you truly can’t make wrong. And with this fail proof recipe, dinner around the table is sure to be a success!

  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 lb Ground Turkey (you can substitute the second lb with ground Italian sausage or double the ground beef)
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1/2 onion- diced
  • 1/2 green pepper- diced
  • 6 cloves minced garlic
  • 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2-1 tsp crushed red pepper (or to taste- depending on desired spice)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves-coarsely chopped (to garnish)
  • freshly grated Parmesan


  • In a large stock pot, add the evoo, beef, turkey, diced onion, diced green pepper and brown.  Add in the minced garlic right before the mixture is done. Cook until fragrant (only a few minutes). Drain excess grease off at this time.
  • Add tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, all of spices, Worcestershire, and sugar to the dutch oven. 
  • Stir well to combine and bring to a slow boil.
  • Once boiling, turn immediately down to simmer.
  • Let simmer for 3-4 hours. The longer the better because the flavors have time to marry.
  • Cook Pasta accordingly. We like Angel Hair- I boil till al dente (approx 6 mins).
  • Garnish with fresh Parmesan & Basil!
