Lynda's Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by April Wholikesitez

My husband married me on the condition that I never buy a jar of spaghetti sauce and that I ALWAYS use his mother's recipe. No complaints here! (I pretty much never let it simmer a full hour, so I can't tell you if it actually needs to simmer that long, but I think 20 minutes cooking time is plenty.)

I really enjoyed this spaghetti sauce while DH didn't. For him, it was 3 stars. I used minced onion but a whole onion would have been great and also some fresh mushrooms. I'll have to try with onion and mushrooms. I liked that it was really easy. I liked the thickness of it. Thanks April :) Made for Alphabet tag game
