Notes

  • This makes a very large pot of sauce, if you have a larger family, consider stretching the sauce with an additional jar of marinara, or a can of tomatoes.
  • Since we are adding so many different spicy meats, wait until the all of the meats season the sauce before making any adjustments.
  • If you have a smaller family, you may want to freeze this sauce and use it later.

Questions you might have about the Olive Garden sauces

  • What’s in the Olive Garden meat sauce? – In the Olive Garden meat sauce they use both ground beef and pork Italian sausage for their spaghetti sauce with meat.
  • Does the Olive Garden meat sauce have pork? – Yes, it does.
  • How to reheat Olive Garden Spaghetti with meat sauce? If you have prepared spaghetti and meat sauce at home, the best option is not to store the sauce and the pasta SEPERATELY. If you can not do this, I recommend heating pasta on the stovetop and adding a little water, or marinara sauce if you can. Heat the spaghetti very slowly.
