Grandma Flo's Spaghetti Sauce

Top Secret Sauce

My Grandmother Flo was a fantastic grandmother. She was a tremendous cook, had a heart of gold and would always make us grandkids feel great when we came by. Even when my parents needed a break to watch TV, she would glady have us over for a visit. She'd feed us heaps of icecream -- but would cover it in wheat germ and call it "nuts" to turn it into a healthier snack. She would always have water color paints, maps, and those candy cake topper letters for us to snack on. Even later on in life, when I didn't have as nice of clothes as the other kids, she took me out on a spree to go get some nice name brand clothes. When my parents didn't believe in me, she used to give me a thumbs up out the window every morning as I walked to the bus stop. A little encouragement that everything will turn out great. She was exactly what a grandparent should be, and whom I wish my wife and kids could have met.

I'd like to share one of her meals which I found to be among my favorites. This is her spaghetti sauce recipe. It is easy to make, but tastes fantastic in any pasta dish and on garlic bread.

Thanks for being the grandparent everybody should have ❤️


1 lb Ground Sirloin
4 Garlic Cloves
1 Yellow Onion
2 tbsp. Olive Oil
4 cans Italian Herb Tomato Paste
1 box Spaghetti Noodles
4 tbsp Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp Granulated White Sugar

How It's Made

In a pan, begin browning the sirlon beef. Dice the yellow onion into a seperate pot, using a garlic press, mince the garlic and blend with the onion. Begin sautéing the onions and garlic.

If you used cheap poor people meat instead of sirloin, drain. Now pour the meat into the garlic and onion pot. Add all four cans of herbed tomato paste. With one of the remaining cans, fill it five times with water and add to the pot. Stir until well mixed.

Add the sugar and the Italian seasoning to the sauce. Simmer for 30 minutes.

Enjoy over spaghetti or garlic bread!
