Meat Sauce


I hope you all enjoyed the fresh pasta sauce. That is a sauce I only make once a year.

Tonight I will give you my recipe for a basic meat sauce. It can be used on many different pastas for a variety of tastes.


Ingredients needed:

  • Ground beef, about a pound
  • 1 large jar of Ragu meat sauce
  • Bag of frozen peas. (I like baby peas)
  • Salt, sugar, oregano, and granulated garlic
  • Whole, peeled garlic
  • Capers if desired


Start by frying the ground beef, adding salt, oregano, and garlic to taste.

In a large saucepan, pour in the Ragu. Add ½ jar of water and bring to a boil. Add in salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar and about ½ a bag of peas. You could also use a handful of capers. Add some oregano and 2-3 cloves of garlic.

Once the ground beef is fried up, add to the sauce and simmer for about 1 or 2 hours. Stir frequently or it will stick and burn


This sauce works best on rotini, fettuccini, and cavatelli.

This is also the sauce I use for making baked ziti. I will give that recipe in a future blog.


Enjoy, feel free to contact me for any questions.
