Canned Fresh Tomato Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Chef Jen 1

I've always loved homemade spaghetti sauce and this one is my favorite. If you like your sauce chunky don't run through food mill, I usually make some smooth and some chunky. Also the original recipe called for 2 Hot peppers to be cooked in the oil with the garlic and onions.
