If You Could Just Use One Herb For Spaghetti Sauce....

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Greek oregano is by far my favorite herb to use in spaghetti sauce. It grows in my backyard. I harvest it each fall and freeze it. Right now, I'm all out. I usually use thyme,as well, also grows it in my backyard. I'm not all out of thyme. It comes in second for spaghetti sauce.

What's your favorite?

Definitely fresh basil as it adds the most punch, having had many yummy pasta sauces all over Italy! :)

Basil seems to have it. Which strain of basil is the most tasty to grow?

Genovese for sure. It is also very easy to grow (even here on the windswept prairies as long as it has protection and is a little sheltered). Genovese is also my first pick for pestos.

I may try growing that this year. My first choice is still Greek oregano. It has the sweetest, freshest taste of any herb I've ever used. This is not the same flavor as plain oregano that you buy in the store, as you know.

Oh, I love Greek oregano, too! It grows wild at our place in Croatia and it is so true that it is nothing like what you can get in the store - much BETTER!! :D
