Awesome Spaghetti/Pasta Sauce

Posted by KerenR 7 (My Page) on

Does anyone have a great spaghetti/pasta sauce recipe that is approved for canning? I saw NCHFP's recipe, but it along with others I've seen just seem so bland. Any with sweet peppers in them? I'm looking for a recipe that really tastes great, not just a recipe you are able to can at home. Also, let me know if I am perceiving that recipe wrong. Thanks!

It is a personal taste thing. Personally we don't find the NCHFP recipe to be at all bland. It includes 1 cup of chopped sweet peppers. And like any other ingredients you can always add more after opening and prior to serving.

But it all depends on if you are seeking a recipe for cooking and fresh eating or one for canning. You can find many different cooking/fresh eating recipes for spaghetti sauce over on the Cooking forums here and on the Recipe Exchange Forum. But they aren't safe for canning.

Recipes that are safe to can will be fairly basic in order to make them safe. Then the other ingredients to boost them to personal taste preferences are added after the jar is opened.

Linked several previous discussions on this question below. Some of them include recipes too and will indicate if they are a canning or a cooking recipe.

Dave, thanks for the input. The recipe calls for 1 green pepper. Can you safely substitute a sweet pepper (orange, red, yellow, or chocolate) instead? I'll give it a try tomorrow, and see how it goes!

RE: Awesome Spaghetti/Pasta Sauce

What recipe are you looking at? The Spaghetti Sauce recipe says 1 cup chopped green peppers not 1 pepper.

Green peppers are sweet peppers but yes, you can use any color of sweet pepper you want for the recipe or even a combination of colors as long as it doesn't exceed 1 cup.

All sweet peppers aka bell peppers aka mango peppers start out green and then gradually turn red or yellow or purple or whatever color.
