      This is a nice basic sauce to do instead of buying jars of spaghetti sauce. This is so simple and it cooked for only 1 hour and was ready. I used 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. Thanks Erindipity. Made for PAC Spring 2008

      This is delicious, quick and easy spaghetti sauce. The seasoning was perfect as is - the flavour was great. I cooked mine for 1 hour which gave a nice thick sauce. I did add halved and whole mushrooms in the last 1/2 hour of cooking as I love mushrooms with pasta sauce. I used 1/2 tsp of pepper flakes which definitely gave quite and after burn so I would use just under 1/2 in the future. Thanks Erindipity!!

      Made this for PAC 2007. I hate to admit it but I have never made my own spaghetti sauce. I have always bought jarred. So this was my first experience with making spaghetti sauce. This was really easy to make and tasty. Everyone enjoyed it. I froze some for future use.
