Well Worth It

Don’t let the long list of ingredients scare you off! This recipe makes enough sauce for at least 4 to 6 different meals. The extra effort it takes to make Big Batch Meat Sauce really pays off in the end. I like to make Big Batch Spaghetti Meat Sauce on a rainy or snowy Saturday afternoon. This gives me all day to make the sauce, let it cool and get it ready for the freezer. Bonus, the sauce smells delicious simmering all day on the stove. Whilst the sauce is simmering all day, make a loaf of garlic bread and “sample” the sauce throughout the day. Don’t forget the wine, makes sampling so much sweeter.

Follow Easy Directions

Follow these easy directions and you’ll have a freezer full of delicious spaghetti sauce at your fingertips. Allow the sauce to cool in the pot to room temperature. Divide sauce between gallon size freezer baggies. Dividing sauce as many cups per baggie that is sufficient enough to feed your family. For example, if you have a small family or if your family doesn’t like a lot of sauce, then you’ll have more freezer baggies containing sauce.

However, two cups sauce per baggie is a good guide to follow. After all, you can always defrost two baggies. Right? Squeeze the air out of the baggies, this will allow the baggies to lay flat in your freezer and therefore can be “stacked” to save space. Write the name, date and amount on the baggie. Place or stack the baggies in the freezer until needed. You’ll have a delicious spaghetti meat sauce at your fingertips, anytime.
