This meat sauce is quick and easy to make and is a basic sauce that brings earthy flavour and lots protein to many favourite dishes. I use this meat sauce in this moussaka, that is a family fave during fall and winter. It is also great with zoodles (zucchini noodles).
It’s easy to double up when making this sauce so you can put one batch in the freezer and get a head start on dinner in coming weeks.
Brown meat for a few minutes, then add dried herbs and minced garlic.
Add tomato paste and strained tomatoes and water. I use the water I will be adding to rinse out the tomato sauce bottle.
Let simmer to merge the flavours, 20-30 minutes is enough, but longer is better if you have the time.
