    Lab Chef's Note:

    Best spaghetti sauce you will ever have. This sauce has been in the works for about 10 years, and is nearly perfect for spaghetti. Meat can be added, and works wonderful with meatballs. The wonderful thing is it is not runny if prepared correctly. Also did I forget to mention it is a slow-cooker so make in the morning, come home from work make some pasta and the great sauce is already ready. Enjoy
