Spaghetti with Fresh Canned Spaghetti Sauce

Sarah and I have been very busy canning and preserving our garden. What do you make when you have dozens of quarts of Garlic Basil Tomato Sauce in your cellar? Spaghetti, duh. We’re just showing you a simple way to use up some of your garden produce.

From seed to plant, from pot to jar, and finally from storage to our plate. Our tomato sauce completes the nearly year-long journey of our little seeds to our dinner plate. Our recipe has no added salt and no sugar. Just fresh ingredients for healthy living. Compare that to your store-bought spaghetti sauce! Tonight, my family of six ate about 2/3 of our sauce. This rest of this meal can be easily microwaved and used a lunch in the next couple of days.

  • One quart of your homemade Garlic Basil Tomato Sauce
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef. We used our 1/4 cow we nicknamed “Ross.” I guess you could call this “Ross Spaghetti” if you wanted.
  • Onion
  • Box of spaghetti


  1. Cut up the onion and fry it until it begins to clear.
  2. Fry up the ground beef with the onion.
  3. When the meat is cooked, add the sauce.
  4. Cook the noodles.
  5. Plate the spaghetti.

First, cut up an onion and fry up your beef as shown:

Add your Garlic Basil Tomato Sauce and stir. Keep it on low after it is heated.

Boil your noodles, drain, and plate. Add a scoop of the sauce to the top and enjoy.

Homemade canned tomato sauce is so much better than what you get in the store. It has a fraction of the sodium and the taste is so fresh. You can really taste the real tomatoes in your meal.
