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!

This is a very nice sauce that we enjoyed tonight. It's very easy to put together also. I put mine on at 10 am and let it simmer all day. Yummy. My photo was horrible so am not posting to the recipe.
