    lazyme's Note:

    This is my husband's favorite spaghetti sauce that he requests frequently. I looked through 17 pages of spaghetti sauce on Zaar and never found one quite like it. It's very simple, tasty and freezes well. We like to add garlic, mushrooms, green bell peppers, basil and Italian sausage to this whenever I have them on hand. Although this is ready in about an hour, I usually let it simmer longer to meld the flavors.

      Simple and basic, but could be varied in many ways, with sausage, vegies, etc, as mentioned in the description. I doubled the recipe easily, and subbed ground turkey for the beef. The onion soup mix is a nice addition.

      Holyie tomatoes, Batman! I have been really looking for something different to can this go round (to many tomatoes) so just made 7 quarts of this. I did not add mushrooms and ground beef to the canned sauce, but did add it to the fresh I served today, for Saturday Lunch at the Farm. Also, when canning, I added 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to each quart. Loved the brown sugar, and dried onion mix, together. Was not sweet at all. Just made all the flavors meld together. I added 1 tablespoon of minced garlic too. Will make again, and soon too! Thanks lazyme!
