Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Are there any “dump-the-jar-of-prego-into-a-saucepan-and-warm-up” peeps out there? Not for long because this sauce is easy AND delicious!  I’ve never been a fan of jarred sauces. There is just something about the flavor of them that I don’t like.

Homemade Spaghetti Seasoning

The seasoning in this dish are probably in your pantry already, and you’re never going to want to eat the jarred stuff again.  Skip the preservative and ingredients you can’t pronounce and try out this easy spaghetti sauce for your next pasta night.

For my big punch of flavor I used my favorite Redmond Real Salt Garlic Salt and Onion Salt.  Real Salt is America’s only unrefined ancient sea salt.  I really love that it is mined here in the US – in my hometown state – Utah!  And most importantly I love the taste!  Real Salt is no match for those regular salts.

Great For A Dinner Party

This spaghetti sauce is a hit for dinner parties because you can make it in advance in the slow cooker – leaving you the chance to enjoy your company rather than slaving in the kitchen.

Spaghetti is economical and feeds the masses!  Serve with french bread and a salad and you will have a winning meal.
