 55 years ago a woman taught me to make spaghetti sauce using tomato paste, 
tomato puree, bells seasoning, oregano, bay leaf, thyme, and I don’ remember 
what else.  It had the best flavor.  I am sorry that I lost the recipe, and 
I can’t find it since the lady died.

 My son raves about you and how you find so many recipes.  I hope you can 
help me also.

 Thank you.


Hello Ellie,

I've searched everywhere that I can think of, including the Bell's Seasoning website, but I cannot find a spaghetti sauce or a pasta sauce recipe with Bell's seasoning.

I'll post this for the input of my readers. Maybe one of them knows of such a recipe.

Good morning,

This is from my archives.

Bell's Seasoning Spaghetti Sauce

    Large can of tomatoes (I use diced, but crushed, chopped, or peeled whole work well too)
    Two small cans of tomato paste
    One large onion.
    3 or 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
    2 or 3 TBS Olive oil
    One zucchini,
    2 or 3 carrots
    1 green pepper
    8 oz of mushrooms
    2 tsp sugar
    1/2 to 1 tsp each (or more) of:
    Chili powder
    black pepper
    Bell's seasoning
    1 Bay Leaf
    Red Wine (optional)
    Meat (Optional, you can use burger, italian sausage, chicken etc.)

    Variations: Add red pepper flakes to the sauce to spice it up some.


In a large pot on the stove with medium to medium high heat, add enough olive oil to coat the bottom. 
Brown the meat, if using. While the meat is browning, chop all of the vegetables. You want them on 
the small side or your sauce will resemble a stew. Drain the meat and set aside for a few. If you are 
using red wine, add it to the pot and deglaze the pan. Add a little more olive oil to the pot, and 
add all of the vegetables and the garlic.

 Lower the heat to medium and cook the vegetables until they sweat. Add the meat back to the pot. 
Add the large can of tomatoes plus one can of water. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Add the 
seasonings. When the sauce boiling nicely, add your tomato paste. Stir the sauce thoroughly to 
incorporate the tomato paste. When the sauce is back up to a boil, add your sugar.
 Reduce heat to a simmer, and simmer for 90 mins to 2 and 1/2 hours. Stir every 15 mins or so. Adjust 
the seasonings to your taste while it simmers.
