The Best Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

Now you might be thinking….do you really believe that you made the best spaghetti sauce recipe?? Yes and….maybe yes. Let me tell you something. Spaghetti is one of my favorite dishes to make, as I have been trying to perfect my recipe for nearly a year now. 

I feel that my recipe is nearly close to my definition of perfect, so of course I had to share it with all with you.


What is even better about this recipe is that it contains no meat or cheese. No one said that a spaghetti had to include animal products, right? Plant-based dishes are just as delicious…I can definitely vouch for that. 

This sauce is laced with delectable capers, quality green olives, and sun dried tomatoes. Serve on top of your desired spaghetti noodles (whole-wheat, gluten-free, etc.) garnish with nutritional yeast, fresh basil, and cracked black pepper.
