Homemade spaghetti

Submitted by: EHUD18

Introduction

This is my grandmother's recipe for spaghetti, except she used ground beef and Italian sausage. I personally like the deer meat because it is leaner....and since I have a lot of hunters in my family equaling LOTS of deer meat.

Ingredients

    1 can each of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste
    1 lb of venison
    garlic salt
    parsley
    thyme
    basil
    fennel seed
    pepper
    oregano
    onion power(or fresh onions and garlic if you have it)
    spaghetti noodles
    1 packet of Splenda (whatever sweetener you want)

Directions

I like to let my sauce simmer for a long time to truly meld the flavors but it can be completed within 30-45 minutes. Start the sauce first--just throw it all in the pot (not the sugar). Make sure you use low heat or it will splatter everywhere. Brown the deer meat with a little salt and pepper. You will have to watch it. Venison is a lot leaner than regular beef so it will stick easier. When finished, drain the meat if needed and put in the sauce pot. Start to boil the water for the noodles. Cook the noodles until desired texture and strain. We like to rinse ours with cold water and then hot to stop the cooking process and to make sure they don't become sticky. Taste the sauce, if it is too acidic or "tomato-y" add the package of splenda or whatever sweetener you wanted. Stir it up and serve.
