    Everyone likes spaghetti :hungry: But everyone makes their sauce a little differently. I want to know what you put in yours, and more specifically what you don't.
    Classic American spaghetti sauce usually includes: ground beef, onion, garlic, green bell pepper, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, oregano, basil, salt & black pepper.
    Classic Itallian spaghetti bolognese is pretty different because it's primarily a meat sauce and not tomato based. Different ingredients it usually includes are: Olive oil, bacon, minced beef, carrots, celery, rosemary, thyme, milk and red wine.

    The spaghetti sauce I make (and am making right now) is a mix between the two styles, different ingredients I use are mushrooms, spinach and cinnamon.
    What do you guys use?

    I'm adding shredded carrots to mine right now thanks to you :D2 Sometimes when I want to sneak more vegetables into Mr Wreckys diet I'll add finely chopped cauliflower, zucchini and eggplant. He has no idea :troll:

    Nice, report back when you've tried the smoked paprika. It is everything.

    Did I forget to list paprika? I don't have smoked right now, but I always add a little paprika and sometimes a touch of cayenne pepper :D Amazing, and the cinnamon really elevates the flavours.

    I like to switch it up a little bit each time, but I like adding a lot of ingredients and need it to be meaty and filling.
    I add lots of garlic, onion, carrots, tomatoes and celery. I don't like to add bell peppers or zucchini.
    Definitely needs a nicely seasoned hamburger, but I like to add other meats as well, usually sausages of some time, often chorizo.
    I love mushrooms so I always add a good helping of that. Hmmm... trying to remember what else I like to add.

    Mr Wrecky likes the meat to be about 80% ground beef and 20% ground pork. Totally not my jam, but I do it for him occasionally to compensate for when I add quinoa or couscous (which is what I like)

    I consider using just lean ground beef instead of extra lean to be fatty enough :imslow:

    I'm going to die from something else far before the fat kills me.

    I'm actually afraid of dying of syphilis even though I'm clean and should never catch it.
