I got this recipe out of a magazine several years ago and it's one of my most favorite spaghetti sauces. It came from an Italian family in New Jersey. Thank you Grandma Gozzi!

Hi Sissylu, I have made your recipe twice now.  The first time I made it exactly as written.  The second time I added  some chopped green pepper along with the onions.  I also threw in  some browned Italian sausage and Kittencals Melt in Your Mouth Meatballs and let it simmer for a couple of hours.  The consistency of the sauce is fabulous.  We don't like our spaghetti sauce to be runny or too thick. This sauce turned out perfect each time I made it. Thanks for posting a delicious recipe.
