Freezer Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce

Freezer Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce is versatile, delicious and great to have ready to go!

I use this recipe for Freezer Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce.  It is great for either!  It is easy to dump in a pot, enjoy the smell of meat and tomatoes and garlic in the house for a couple of hours and then pour over traditional noodles, a low carb and gluten free option of zoodles or even french cut string beans or over quinoa as a nutritious, gluten free option.  We have done all of those at our house.

We also use this as a pizza sauce for Low Carb Pizza Crust or spaghetti sauce for Beef Pasta Bake Freezer Meal or Crock Pot Italian Pesto Chicken.   It freezes perfectly and is so nice to pull out for a quick, easy, delicious family meal later.

This recipe makes a lot.  It is hard to judge a serving since it could be used so many different ways.

Diced tomatoes and tomato sauce measurements do not need to be exact, just have about twice as many diced as sauce.  Sometimes I use the big 105 oz can from Sam’s Club for the sauce and sometimes three 28 oz cans; whatever I have on hand.

If it is watery, drain the diced tomatoes better the next time.

Freezer Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce
Instructions
  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. And a nice big pot
  3. This is an optional step but if you plan to make this often, it saves time when you make it again. As I measure out the seasonings for my pot, I also add the same to a small container. The next time I already have over half of the ingredients measured and ready to dump in the pot!
  4. Dump everything in the pot. I already had my meat cooked so it was ready to go.
  5. Stir it together and let it simmer gently for a couple of hours at least. Stir now and then.
  6. It is done!
  7. Serve over pasta.
  8. Or serve over french cut string beans for gluten free and low carb.
  9. Package up leftovers for the freezer. I put some in larger containers that will be good for a family meal later and also some smaller ones for pizza sauce. These are wonderful to have ready to go in the freezer! It can also be pressure canned; process pints 1 hour and quarts 1 hour, 15 minutes at 10 pounds pressure.
