Store-bought pasta sauce comes in limited varieties, and most brands tend to be loaded with sugar. Learning how to make your own sauce at home allows you to use fresh ingredients that are more health-conscious and create unique flavors for your spaghetti.
When making homemade spaghetti sauce, there's a few tricks you can use to heighten your sauce's quality:
This simple recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce uses a unique ingredient -- parmesan rind. The rind is tossed into the sauce while it simmers, giving off the great flavors of parmesan without being overly cheesy. This, combined with a classic tomato sauce, bell peppers, mushrooms and Italian sausage, make for a filling, delicious sauce.
This is a tasty recipe for a unique tomato sauce that uses fennel seeds and chicken broth to provide different flavors, while also using standard ingredients such as tomatoes, onions and garlic. This, along with the sugar and tomato paste, make for a sweeter, more intricate spaghetti sauce.
The selling point of this spaghetti sauce is the pepperoni and red pepper flakes, which makes a tomato sauce with some extra kick to it. The brown sugar combines with the water and chicken broth to create complex flavors, and the black olives and parmesan make this one of the most complete homemade spaghetti sauces you can work with.
