      We enjoyed this yummy spaghetti sauce. I made a few changes to suit our personal tastes. I browned 1-lb. of crumbled Italian sausage and added 1 chopped bell pepper to the onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Since we like lots of vegetables in our sauce, I doubled the amounts of onion and mushrooms used. Also, since jars of spaghetti sauce are now 24-oz. instead of 26-oz., I added an 8-oz. can of tomato sauce. I served this over whole-wheat spaghetti and topped it with lots of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Yum!! Thank you for sharing!<br/>**Made for Spring 2013 PAC**

      I always like to jazz up my bottled spaghetti sauce as well with about the same ingredients except that i add a generous dose of parmesan cheese, a spoonful of paprika, chicken or beef bullion and a bit of ketchup and/or sugar. Turns out perfect and smells delicious while cooking.

      Yes, I find that jarred spaghetti sauce needs to be kicked up a little, as well. This is a great combination of flavorful ingredients that makes the sauce taste homemade.

      Great Name, and great recipe. Like the other reviewers I always doctor up jarred purchased sauce. But this recipe is really special. The fennel is a great addition I never would have thought of. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
