Happy National Spaghetti Day! Celebrate it Taylor Hicks-style with his special family recipe. Not only is the host of State Plate sharing his secret recipe exclusively with INSP viewers, but he’s also revealing the one ingredient that makes this meat sauce stand out among others: Brown sugar!
The trick is in the slow simmer to blend all these mouthwatering flavors! The longer it simmers the more savory the sauce. For many traditional Italian families, making the sauce is an all-day ritual.
Don’t forget the Italian bread, not only to accompany your meal, but to sneak in a dunk or two while the sauce is cooking!
So get out a big pot and get this flavorful sauce simmering on the stove for a hearty, satisfying meal—on National Spaghetti Day and any day.
And don’t forget to watch Taylor chow down on America’s favorite foods as the host of State Plate every Friday at 9p ET.
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 teaspoons dried basil
Remember to remove the bay leaves before serving hot over spaghetti. Add a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and a hunk of Italian bread and Mangia!
