A small can of tomato paste is a good thickening agent. I usually add paste to things like lasagna or a meatloaf topping.


Yup, tomato paste is the easiest way to thicken the sauce. I normally just cook down my sauce until it is thick enough. Also make sure your spaghetti is strained well enough.

My wife and I like to use Ragu's Spaghetti sauce. We brown 1lb of ground beef, then drain the fat, if any. We then add the Ragu and allow the mixture to simmer for 5-10 minutes. Some times we have to add water to thin the sauce.

Better make sure the floor is padded. ..

I was raised by a pack of Sicilians on Dad's side. ...

If using store bought sauce, to thicken it, it's best to add some tomato paste and simmer on medium heat to thicken/evaporate excess water.
I add extra spices like red pepper, garlic, oregano, and my meats during this step.
Add olive oil to the finished product and sorpresa! delizioso!

Unless the sauce is watery to begin with, the starch from the pasta should hold the sauce.

I usually use Prego sauce but doctor it up a bit. I'll get 1lb. of Itallian Sausage, brown and drain the fat. Dice up half a large onion, add tomatoes,canned from previous year and add garlic salt and oregano to taste. Let all this simmer about 2 hours. This will get rid of the water. Add spaghetti and enjoy.

RDL, if you'd ditch the prego, you'd pretty much have your own sauce.

I made some one year when we were canning tomatoes. It was pretty good but to much work. You can take the prego and doctor it up and it's pretty good.
