70's Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce With Meat

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Max Thames

This recipe has been my standard for pasta and lasagna. I've never found another like it and it seems that many people haven't since I lost it and tried on here, Hunt's website, and many, many other places to find it again. I'm posting it here so it won't get lost again. If you are into canning, make a bunch. Give this sauce time to thicken. It's even better the next day!

I want to thank you for posting this. You were correct in saying people have lost this recipe. When I first got married I found this recipe at an I.G.A. store as a give away. I was great, then over the years I was cooking professionally and lost track on some good old stand byes. I even contacted Hunts and they do not have a record of it. So again big thanks. For anyone else a very good cheap pasta sauce and it freezes great.
