Mama's Special Spaghetti

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mamabear22

This is my own special spaghetti recipe, honed over the years. This is a staple in our house, about once a week. (Note: This sauce is not the thick, jarred-type spaghetti sauce that we see in the stores or most restaurants. It might seem watery at first, but it really has so much more flavor than the sauces we are used to in America.)

Why use canned spaghetti sauce when for very little time or effort, you could be enjoying this recipe? Just for personal taste preferences, I added 1 tsp red pepper flakes. I'm looking forward to trying more of your recipes for PAC Spring 2008!
