Let’s get cooking!
One of my favorite meals growing up was spaghetti. My mom would always make it with a super delicious meat sauce that would be bubbling away on the stove leaving a tasty aroma to waft around the house.
If you were the least bit hungry, it would result in hunger pains and stomach growls. Because face it, when there is a fragrant spaghetti sauce flavor in the air–well, that begs to be eaten right away.
Spaghetti is one of the first recipes that I remember cooking with my mom. Granted, I’ve added diced tomatoes to my sauce whereas her sauce always was smooth instead of chunky. But, the basis for the sauce is still there.
And bonding over cooking in the kitchen, well–that’s a tradition that has been passed on to me and my daughter. It’s one I enjoy immensely.
It’s super easy to mix this sauce up.
