A good friend gave me this recipe when I was whining I didn't have a good spaghetti sauce recipe. She said it was her mother-in-law's.

I thought this sauce was just OK. It was easy to make but it didn't have enough spices in it; it just tasted like tomatoes. The meatballs were pretty good, though.
