Recipe Notes

Chef Tips: Making Great Italian Spaghetti Sauce

Be sure to prep all the ingredients ahead of time and before beginning to cook. You don't want to forget something along the way, and I have found it the best practice to prepare and measure all the ingredients before you begin to cook. I typically begin with cutting all the vegetables, then measuring all the spices.

Be sure to use a stock pot that is large enough to hold all the ingredients, I use a stainless steel stock pot for this recipe. I avoid using nonstick stock pots for recipes that don't need them. It saves on their wear. Aside from that cooking food on high heat can damage nonstick pots.
