This is a delicious meat sauce that has a very fine texture. It comes from a famous restaurant in Huntington, West Virginia that has been serving this spaghetti for 67 years.

After 14 years I finally made this for my WV sweetie. Are I say homemade without the 8 hour drive to WV is even better. Our youngest eats it out of a bowl without noodles.
