My Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Donna

I have made my sauce this way for years. It is very easy and I think really good. The Italian dressing mix is the key--the longer this simmers the better it is, but it can be made quickly too. I have also made it in the crock pot!

This is a VERY good pasta sauce! Very easy to throw together. I put it all in the crockpot and cooked on low for 8 hours. A great meal to come home to! I added italian sauages for another meal of bombers and was very happy I did. I will make this again!
