Tip for freezing this easy spaghetti sauce:

It’s totally optional but I like to use these hands free bag holders during my freezer sessions. They are seriously a life saver.

They keep your bags open so you can just dump your ingredients inside. You can snag them very inexpensively on Amazon.

If you freeze this spaghetti sauce, it works best to freeze them with each bag being flat. This makes it really convenient to stack them in the freezer.

I love that you can make a huge batch of this spaghetti sauce to freeze or later!
