Awesome sauce. I made it according to the directions but let it simmer without the lid, on high, in my crockpot for about five or six hours. It was nice and thick and everyone raved.
What more can I say? This is a really GREAT, simple sauce that tastes terrific! It will definitely be replacing my old stand-by recipe. The only changes I made were to sub one cup of wine for one of the cups of water (total wine used 1 1/4 cup- hey, I'm a wino!) and increse the amount of red pepper flakes. Everyone in the family loved it! Thanks for sharing, Sharlene!
This was really tasty. I won't carry on and on, since I'm just not much of a tomato sauce person no matter how good it is. I'll stick with this recipe since it's certainly much better than any I've tried in the past. And it makes a ton...I've got 2 containers in the freezer for future meals and gave another to my mom.
Excellent! I followed earlier comments and skipped the water. It made a nice thick sauce and it has become our favourite.
this was the best sauce i have ever made. i made the recipe exactly as it was written, and i would'nt change a thing. i had have for dinner, then the next night i used the other half of the sauce to make lasagna. just fabulous! thanks.
Love this sauce! There were a few things I usually don't put in "my old" sauce, but I followed it to the letter (simmered a bit longer..I like a long simmered deep red sauce). I liked the flavor, the chunky sauce, the amount of meat..Yum. A Keeper for sure!
This sauce was delicious. I followed the recipe and let it simmer for 3 hours. My family loved it. Thanks for posting it!
Well, this is not my mama's spaghetti sauce, that's for sure. I have used my mom's recipe for 20 years now and have to keep this a secret...but everyone went gaga over Jo Mama's! It was so great, my daughter was drinking it out of her bowl after she dipped her Italian bread in it! The only change I made was using crushed tomatoes instead of diced and I simmered for about 3 hours. All I can say is WOW...Thanks so much for sharing!
Definitely some of the best spaghetti sauce I have tasted! Like many others have said, I put in only one pound of mild Italian sauage and then a pound of ground turkey. I also only used enough water to clean out the tomato cans and then let it simmer for about 4 hours. Delicious!
Mercy!!! This is awsome. I am making it right now and I don't know if there will be enough sauce for dinner! I cut the recipe in half. I used diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano. The paste was italian paste, too (I love spices). I left out the basil that it call for and still added the other spices. I also added 1/2 cup of Chianti (red wine, that is what I had on hand). Added mushrooms and the sauce was done! I oil my noodles and put Italian seasoning with parm. cheese. I love it!
