I made this for one of my appetizers for my Christmas Eve crowd. I served it on a side roll that was buttered, sprinkled with garlic powder, and then toasted with some mozzarella cheese. It was yummy. I liked the sauce even more after it had set for a few days and we had the left overs!
Great recipe. I made it with the meatballs and both came out excellent. I found that it had a bit to much salt for my taste. next time I;ll start with 1.5 tsp and add more if needed. Thanks for submitting.
this was soooooo good!!! thanks you for another great recipe! The meatballs were killer!!! best meatballs i've ever had :)
Perfecto with your meatballs. A little too spicy for 1 of my kids. Next time I'll put red pepper on table.
I was originally going to give this recipe 3 stars but now I'm giving it 5 stars because the flavour improved IMMENSELY after sitting in the fridge for 3 days! I honestly didn't like the smell of it when I was making it, though. I thought that there was too much oregano. After I added Kittencal's meatballs to the sauce, the flavor of the oregano mellowed out a bit but it wasn't anything to rave about. I let it simmer for a few hours and then left it over night to cool. Then I put it in the fridge in the morning trying to figure out what to do with it. I'm glad it sat for several days. The meatballs became more tender and the sauce was over the top delicious. Tonight I reheated the sauce and meatballs and tossed it with penne pasta. My picky 2 and 3 year olds couldn't get enough of it! I had a second serving myself. I'm freezing the rest for my husband for when he gets back from his business trip in a few days. I will make this again (and use less oregano) and plan a few days ahead before serving. The only thing I did different is that I used fresh basil instead of dried and added it to the sauce rather than frying it with the onions.
This sauce is to die for good, and if I never try another recipe for sauce it won't bother me a bit, because I have found just the right one for us! Truly an awesome sauce with meatballs! I didn't add the sugar after reading the reviews and the flavor was second to none!
Delicious tender meatballs that melt in your mouth! The sauce was a little sweet, but everyone enjoyed it, hence the five stars! Served over linguine noodles, it's a great meal!
Fabulous. First rate. You've made my life long quest for the best spaghetti and meatballs recipe a reality. I can die in peace with a meatball in my mouth. Joe C.
Super rich tomato sauce - simmered for 4 1/2 hours with the meatballs and it turned out wonderfully!! I omitted the red wine and added 1 can of tomato soup instead - I also added a little water - Do not pass this sauce up!!
