This is what I call awesome home cooking...My Mom used to make this and we'd all be dying just smelling how wonderful it was going to be while it was cooking! My Mom was a gifted cook, and this recipe just might prove it...YUM!

This was delicious! It was very much enjoyed by the whole family. I used Tinkerbelle's suggestion and served it over spaghetti noodles with garlic cheesy bread on the side. I topped the spaghetti with shredded cheddar was sooooo good. I added a tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, a bay leaf, and a teaspoon each of dried oregano and basil and some fresh cracked black pepper and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to the recipe.I will use this for chili spaghetti all the time! R.I.P. Stacey, thanks for posting all these treasured wonderful recipes!
