Different people look for different things in a spaghetti sauce. In fact, your spaghetti sauce says alot about you as a person. This is undoubtedly the best spaghetti sauce I have ever had! It is full-bodied but balanced. It is meaty yet the meat does not overwhelm the flavor. With a sprinkle of parmesan, a french baguette and a red wine on the side this sauce creates the perfect evening! I'm love this chef!!

I made this recipe this weekend at my son's request for italian food. I did add a few more cloves of garlic but that was the only change. Bev, this was great. Just spicy enough. DH said it was the best Spaghetti I have ever made. Served this with a green salad and homemade bread sticks. Excellent dinner. Thanks Bev!

Excellent sauce Bev! I usually make my own recipe that I have been making for years so I thought I would try something different and we all enjoyed this very much!! Sure made alot of sauce I was able to feed 5 of us and still had plenty left over. I froze the rest for another day. I didn't add mushrooms but put plenty of parmesan cheese on. Delicious, thanks for sharing.
