Got the midweek slumps and don’t know what to cook for dinner? With Midweek Menu 203, you can make a comfort-food meal for your family with leftovers to make life easy.
This menu is near and dear to me. It features “mama sauce,” as my family calls it. It’s a homemade, easy spaghetti sauce that is so good. Not only that, but it’s like a warm hug with pasta in each bite!
Made this for my picky family and it was a hit! Love the flavor and it was easy to make. Definitely adding to my dinner rotation.Susan
This sauce works with any pasta that you like. Whether traditional spaghetti or penne, they all are delicious topped with a big ladle of Homemade Sauce.
I make a fresh salad and Parmesan cheese straws to complete the meal. But, when a meal is this special, I do add dessert. Lemon Crème brûlée, sounds and looks fancy, but it’s not. Once you make it, you’ll be shocked at how easy it is.

Midweek Menu #203 Recipes
Easy Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Homemade Spaghetti Sauce, made with ground beef, tomatoes, garlic, and herbs, has a deep rich flavor that tastes like it's been simmered for hours. This is not your average "easy recipe" for spaghetti sauce! It's thick, meaty, made in about an hour, and is terrific served with pasta and warm bread for a meal that will soon become a staple for your family.
Easy Everyday Green Salad
My recipe for Everyday Green Salad is fresh, simple, and quick! It's made in about 5 minutes with my homemade vinaigrette and goes with just almost everything. What a delicious way to get more greens into your life.
Puff Pastry Cheese Straws
Parmesan and house seasoning turn store bought puff pastry into cheese straws that are perfect as an appetizer or along side soups or salads
Thank you for your Spaghetti Sauce recipe and looking forward to making it! My wonderful twin daughters prefer meatballs into the sauce compared to your method (which I prefer). Am I wrong in the belief by adding the meat into the process early actually helps to create the overall flavor compared to tossing in a bag of frozen meatballs and letting the sauce simmer for a couple of hours? Thank you for your time and consideration.
