    FloridaNative's Note:

    This is my mother's home made spaghetti sauce, which I like to use when making lasagna or baked ziti too. It's not real thick, and not real thin. You can usually serve it after cooking only 1 hour, but additional time brings out the taste better. The only alteration I made to Mimi's recipe is I added chopped green pepper for DH. You can also make it with ground buffalo or ground turkey for a leaner version.

      Ground turkey was used in place of the ground beef and a 15 oz can of tomato sauce. This was also cooked all day in the crock pot and used to make skillet lasagna. Very good and simple. Made for *PAC Spring 2009*

      This is a very easy to put together sauce that only gets better the longer it cooks. I made this in my slow cooker and cooked together with turkey meatballs, also added 2 zucchini and 1/2 cup chopped carrots. Delicious meal on a busy night! Thank you FN! This is a keeper!
