Best Ever Freezer Meal Spaghetti Sauce
This recipe makes one to two bags of sauce, but I always double or triple it so that I can have a lot of these in the freezer for easy weekday meals.
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs. browned ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 x 14 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 5 1/2 oz. can tomato paste
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 tsp. melted honey or sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • dash pepper
Instructions
  1. Before assembling this freezer meal, brown the ground beef in a skillet until no longer pink, breaking into small pieces as it cooks.
  2. Chop the onion and green pepper. Mince the garlic.
  3. To assemble this freezer meal, mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and pour into a large resealable freezer bag or put all the ingredients directly into the bag and then squish together.
  4. Remove the excess air, seal and freeze.
  5. On the day of cooking, take the bag of spaghetti sauce out of the freezer and thaw.
  6. Heat in a large pot on stovetop over medium until desired heat is achieved or cook in the crock pot on low for 2-4 hours.
  7. Serve over spaghetti noodles or gluten free noodles, cooked according to package directions.
Recipe Notes

If you want to make this taste even better, top with crushed chili flakes and grated parmesan or asiago cheese. Yum!
