This Spaghetti Sauce is something everyone loves. It is on the thick and sweet side.
I use it for Spaghetti, Stuffed Shells, and dipping just about anything into!
Use it for meatball hoagies, dipping bread sticks into or how about just meatballs and sauce!
I make more than one batch of this recipe and freeze the rest.
So much better than jar sauce and is extremely easy to make.
Sweet Victory Spaghetti Sauce
Serves: 4 for a Spaghetti Dish
I thought I would try something new and mix the idea of Porcupine Balls (meatloaf type balls with rice), and Stuffed Peppers. It was a very dense ball of meat. Two of my children did not like them but that is because one doesn’t like onions and peppers and the other doesn’t eat much meat.
Porcupine Stuffed Peppers
For the filling:
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 piece of bread broken up
1 bag pre-cooked rice
Salt & pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
You will need 3 medium size green peppers. Remove the seeds and membrane from the inside of the peppers. Place into a casserole dish.
I did slice some sides off the peppers to make them even. I then chopped that up and took some chopped onion and added it to the above filling.
For the Sauce:
29 oz can of Red Pack tomato sauce
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Open the can of sauce. Add the italian seasoning and slowly mix it together. Yup, right in the can!
Pour the sauce over the dish of peppers.
Cover with foil. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
Remove foil and continue to bake until meat is cooked through, about 15 more mintues.

I finally got to eat at Nadines Bar and Restaurant in the Southside. I pass by it on my way home from work everyday. I keep telling myself, “Self, you need to go there and eat one of these days.” It especially peaked my interest when I found out Diners, Drive In’s and Dives filmed there.
From the outside it looks like a small dive bar. Guess what? From the inside it’s a small dive bar and I love it.
Passing by many days there is an older man in one of those power chairs, sometimes it’s just the chair. Sometimes the chair is covered with a small tarp or umbrella. Sometimes it’s in the snow. Most days you can count on it being there. When I go by and it’s not there I wonder about the strange man who occupies it. Where might he be? If I don’t see him for days I hope he is okay. I don’t even know him, never met him and have no idea what his name is. My trip to eat there the chair was outside and he was perched on a stool at the bar, eating food.
It seems like that kind of place. Where regulars go. They probably go to talk to the same people. Watch the same stuff on tv. Drink the same drinks. I bet you can count on them being there. I bet they consider each other friends if not family in a way.
When I walked in i wasn’t sure where to sit. There is a bar going much of the length of the building with stools around it. The outer walls had tables with 2-4 chairs. I sat at a table in the corner and my sister asked for menu’s. The man running the bar was incredibly nice and went over all the specials. We decided on the roast beef special. In the episode of Diners, Drive In’s and Dives it states the specials are $4.50 with tax and drink. They are currently $6.35 with tax and drink which to me is still a steal. 10 mintues after ordering he set the plate in front of me.
It looks just like the plate Guy ate. The smell made me even hungrier.
The meat was so juicy and tender it melted in your mouth. I have had some great home cooking but this tops my list of roast beef. The mashed potatoes had some skin in it and were lumpy. If your me thats a treat!
It was so good I cleaned my plate.
I will be sure to go back and try some of their other specials and menu items. I bet they make a great breakfast.
If your looking for good home cookin and some all around nice people a visit to Nadines is a must!
I am usually crazy about Xmas.
My house is decorated the weekend after Thanksgiving every year. This year I put up wreaths on the door, last night.
I usually have all my shopping done by Black Friday. This year I just started on Black Friday.
We are still remodeling the living room and family is coming for Xmas dinner so we are trying to finish.
If I have to put up the tree on Xmas Eve I will!
Usually by now I have watched Elf 3,486 times. Ok so maybe it’s usually 30 times but that’s alot! I have watched it 2 times so far. The Hallmark Channel has received much attention from me this year however. They show hours upon hours of great Xmas movies.
Today I received a delivery of two gifts I purchased… shhhh don’t tell!
What you see here is a gift pack of Pittsburgh Seltzer Works. I was visited at work by John from Pittsburgh Seltzer who promises me a bottle of my very own tomorrow! If you have ever wanted to know how it tastes look for a review on the blog coming soon.
Once the holidays and renovations are over I will have more time to get out of the house, review, cook, blog. You know all the fun stuff.
I wish all my faithful readers a wonderful and safe Holiday!
Make your own chicken nuggets. You can cut them up to any size to suit your eaters, but adjust cooking time accordingly. You can also use this breading to cook whole breasts but you probably would only need half the breadcrumb mixture.
I purchased an entire can of Emeril’s Seasoning and have found myself using it in many of my dishes. The brown sugar gives it a slightly sweet taste but not too much.
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Emeril's Original Essence Seasoning
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 pds boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
3 tbsp melted butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
On a plate mix breadcrumbs, seasoning and brown sugar.
In a seperate bowl, beat egg.
Dip each nugget of chicken into the egg. Coat with breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with all chicken peices and place in baking pan.
Pour melted butter over top.
Bake in oven for about 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside.
