How do you thicken spaghetti sauce?
The way I like to thicken a sauce is to either let is simmer for a while so it reduces down or you could make a cornstarch slurry (1tbs cornstarch mixed with 2 tbs water) and stir that into the sauce.
However, since this easy pasta sauce doesn’t typically need to be thickened since you are using canned tomato sauce.
How do you like to eat your spaghetti? Mix all the sauce into the noodles or pour it over the noodles?
I can go either way as long as it’s yummy and with this meat sauce!
