My homemade meat sauce is probably the most made meal in my house. It’s easy, my kids love it and there’s always leftovers for lunch or I can freeze half the batch. I tend to do a lot of freezer cooking in the Fall, for when the craziness of the holidays approach and I need a quick meal. When I discovered how easy it was to make homemade meat sauce, especially when you are using Hunts Diced Tomatoes, I stopped buying store bought sauce. This is a million times better and the longer you let it simmer on the stove, the tastier it gets. You can eat it by itself or on top of zoodles (zucchini noodles are our favorite) or spaghetti. If you have kiddos that won’t eat their veggies, feel free to sneak in some pureed veggies while it’s simmering on the stove. The best part? This is a one pot meal, woohoo for less cleanup! 


2lbs Ground Beef
1 Yellow Onion
2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt
2 Teaspoons Italian Spices
1 Teaspoon Oregano 
2 – 28oz Cans Hunts Petite Diced Tomatoes
