Better Than Olive Garden Spaghetti Sauce
This Olive Garden copycat recipe for spaghetti sauce turned out to be even better than the real thing! Note this recipe makes about 3-4 jars of sauce and it freezes great so whip up a batch and save some it for a night you have no time to cook.
  1. Heat the olive oil in a 5+ qt. pot over medium heat, and add the chopped or pressed garlic.
  2. Heat for one to two minutes, making sure not to burn the garlic, then add all the tomatoes, black pepper, basil and sugar. Stirring often, bring to a low boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-3 hours stirring often.
  4. For the first half of the simmer time, do so with the pot uncovered, then cover.
  5. Add the cheese, stir in and simmer for an additional 5 minutes or so.
