    SassiKatt Chef's Note:

    Who doesn't love spaghetti with meat sauce? I love cooking from scratch, but sometimes when I have a craving for this dish and not much time, I cheat and take bottled or canned sauce and add to it.....magnifique! Instead of ground beef, I used ground pork for a twist. Be sure to strain all the fat off your pork by placing the cooked product in a wire strainer or small hole colander.

      This is a great way to doctor up store bought spaghetti sauce. I really enjoyed the hint of red wine taste. I used a pound of Italian sausage and sauteed the onions and green pepper with the sausage. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring, 2009 PAC.

      Your sauce is wonderful. I did make a couple changes but basically followed your recipe. I used a pound of hamburger (no pork on hand) and I added a 14 1/2 oz. can of Hunts Diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings and threw some grated Parmesan cheese into the pot. For the sauce I used a 26 oz. can of Prego Chunky Garden Spaghetti Love the wine addition and green pepper. Thanks for posting, SassiKatt Chef!
