Keeping a collection of spaghetti sauce recipes on hand is smart. When you need a quick or easy home cooked meal, spaghetti is always a hit.

Some of these sauces take time to cook, but most are easy to prepare and get started. That means you spend less time in the kitchen, but still get a great lunch or dinner. Or several – you can freeze spaghetti sauce, so it’s also great for bulk cooking.

This list has a lot of variety. You’ll find traditional recipes like marinara, bolognese, basil pesto and carbonara sauces. But you’ll also find some new twists on old favorites, and some very original sauces. There are even some vegan recipes for “meat” sauce.

No matter what your preference is, there is a recipe on this list that you’ll love. The recipes are relatively easy to make. Some take no more than twenty minutes. Others take longer, but they cook slowly while you’re doing other things. There are even recipes you can toss together in the slow cooker or Instant Pot.
