Onto the sauce - You can buy a store brand spaghetti sauce which is plain or with your preferred ingredients and spices. Alternatively, you can make your own sauce using a can of sliced tomatoes, some diced garlic cloves, oregano, parsley coupled with spices and seasonings from your spice rack. You can also use fresh spices.

When the meat has been browned and the sauce is heated, combine meat with the sauce. Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavours to blend together and serve hot with your spaghetti or other pasta.

One final tip - Do experiment with various ingredients and other spices to create your perfect spaghetti sauce.
