Outstanding pasta sauce! Nice and spicy! I did not add meatballs or sausage to my sauce. To me, this sauce stands on its own and needs no added meat to liven it up. However, it would be delicious served either way. Thank you for sharing this family favorite, Ed&Theresa! Your Gramps knew Spaghetti Sauce!
