Recipe by Julie Winter

This is a super easy spaghetti sauce recipe that my mom's been using forever. My brother once told her it was better than his Italian mother-in-law's traditional recipe... I don't know about that, but I've served it many times and given the recipe to lots of people. It will make enough for 1 lb. of noodles depending on how much sauce you like. A good shortcut is to use frozen chopped onions. And it can be done in a crock pot after browning meat.
