Spaghetti Meat Sauce Recipe

Spaghetti Meat Sauce is beefy, juicy and so satisfying. It comes together fast so it is perfect for busy weeknights, and it’s freezer friendly. Meat sauce has all of the comforting flavors of Spaghetti and Meatballs, or traditional Bolognese but is much easier!

Serve this meat sauce over spaghetti with a generous amount of parmesan cheese, paired with asparagus and crusty French bread. P.S. You can also use this meat sauce to make the Best Lasagna.

Spaghetti Meat Sauce

This is my sister Svetlana’s ground beef meat sauce recipe. She uses an original Prego sauce and makes it for camping every year. You can use a homemade marinara sauce or your favorite store-bought marinara. I’ve gotten so many requests for her famous meat sauce recipe so here it is! This one rivals Olive Garden’s spaghetti and meat sauce.

Which Pasta for Meat Sauce?

Here’s the beauty of this recipe – you can pair it with your favorite pasta! Meat Sauce for pasta is traditionally made with spaghetti, but it goes really well with any of these:

  • String Pastas – Spaghetti, Linguine, Fettuccine
  • Ribbon Pastas – Pappardelle or Tagliatelle
  • Tubular Pastas – Penne, Cannelloni, Rigatoni, Ziti
  • Corkscrew Pastas – Cavatappi

How to Make Spaghetti Meat Sauce:

The ingredients for this meat sauce recipe are pantry staples and we always keep a stash of ground beef in the freezer for the days we don’t have a lot of time to get dinner on the table. It comes together in 1 pot or dutch oven and really doesn’t get any easier than this. Seriously the best meat sauce!

  1. Sautee ground beef until no longer pink.
  2. Add chopped onion, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp pepper, cook until soft then add garlic and sautee until fragrant.
  3. Add marinara sauce, 1/4 cup water and 1 tsp sugar. Partially cover and simmer meat sauce 20 minutes. Done!

How to Freeze Meat Sauce:

Meat sauce will last in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To store it longer, transfer meat sauce to a freezer-safe container, leaving just a slight amount of headroom at the top. We prefer freezing meat sauce in freezer ziploc bags because it lays flat in the freezer and can be quick-thawed under running water.

How to Defrost Meat Sauce?

There are a few ways to defrost meat sauce. Once it is fully thawed, reheat over medium heat just until hot and simmering.

  • Quick-thaw method: Place the sealed bag of meat sauce in a bowl under cold water until thawed.
  • Slow-thaw method: Place the frozen meat sauce in the refrigerator overnight.
  • For a camping trip: place packaged frozen meat sauce in a cooler with ice and let it thaw as in a refrigerator overnight.

Family Friendly Pasta Dinners:

This Spaghetti Meat Sauce makes for an irresistibly good pasta dinner loved by all ages! It makes a big batch but you can easily freeze meat sauce for another night. I hope this ground beef meat sauce becomes a new favorite in your home!

    We just finished dinner with this spaghetti sauce recipe. My husband is very picky with sauces because he finds them too acidic for his stomach. He gave it a thumbs up tonight. I think it was the addition of a small amount of added sugar. I remembered my Mom telling me that sugar takes away the acidity. I will look forward to future spaghetti dinners!

    Hi Natasha, what is the difference between marinara and pasta sauce? I have a large pack of the Kirkland pasta sauces, and trying to figure out if there is something I should add that would make it a proper substitute, I read something about oregano, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten. Maybe they are interchangeable in this context? Thank you!

    Reply

    • Natasha
      February 20, 2020

      Hi Martha, Marinara and Pasta sauce are used interchangeably and they can vary by the seasonings added. The Kirkland Pasta sauce will work for this recipe. The only time it isn’t the same is if it says “Tomato Sauce” as that would be just tomato sauce and not a pre-made pasta sauce. The Kirkland Pasta Sauce that I have also says “marinara sauce” on the label.

My Meat Sauce turned out sooo Sour, that I do not know how to remedy it. Can you please help me with your advice or shall I just throw my meat away ?! Thank you very much in advance.

      Hi Elaine, the onion does help balance the flavors and adds a subtle sweetness. Thank you for sharing your experience using a poor quality sauce – I try to find the best quality one that I can if I am not using homemade. You would probably love our sauce form Spaghetti and meatballs which is homemade. At this point, probably the best course of action would be to add a little water and a little sugar to balance out the sour notes.

    I’ve made this and I usually add a step using an immersion blender for a few minutes after it is cooked. That turns it into a very smooth meat sauce that can be used on pizzas and lasagne. I also use it with fresh made pork/beef meatballs, often with sliced mushrooms.

    Gidday Natasha, I enjoy your cooking blog. Rather than adding a jar of commercial sauce to make the spaghetti sauce’s easy to create your own. After cooking the mince ( i use pork mince) sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil and add some chopped celery and grated carrot. Grated zucchini is good too.Add chopped tomatoes and tomato paste, plus some milk and two anchovies. Let this simmer a while and add seasoningThis is a tasty meat sauce and very healthy.

    I am going to make this, because it sounds so yummy. BUT….I have to ask you: 3 minutes prep time???? In what universe? Prep times in ALL online recipes are noted as crazily short, but 3 minutes is just silly. How about giving a prep time where nothing is already trimmed, washed, or chopped? Now, THAT would be realistic!

      Hi Barb, the only thing that needs to be “prepped” here is to chop and onion and mince garlic and 3 minutes seemed reasonable for that. The rest of the recipe is done over the stove and is counted into the cooking time. Hope that helps!

    I have made a similar recipe for years and love it. It also calls for browning the meat before adding the onions, which strikes me as odd. Wouldn’t it be better to slightly carmelize the onions first? Maybe you could enlighten me as to why it is done this way.

      Hi Russ, it isn’t necessary in this recipe because the sauce simmers for awhile afterwards and the onions pretty much disappear into the sauce.

    Did you add small tomatoes to the sauce? I didn’t see them listed in the ingredients, but they are in the sauce.

        Can you add cream at the end?

          Hi Julie, I haven’t added that myself to advise. If you’re looking to make it more like a creamy sauce and adding that, I’d love to know how you like that.

    Saw this pop up on my Instagram today and made it the same night. So easy and delicious! My husband had seconds, then thirds. Your recipes consistently come out so successfully, I never have to worry about having a backup plan when getting dinner on the table.
