Portly Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Wineaux

One thing we are sworn to do where I work is listen to our customers. That paid off big time for me when, the other day, a customer was looking for a tawny port. She said she was in town visiting her family and she had to have it for her spaghetti sauce. I took her to the port and then inquired about her sauce. This recipe is what she told me. It's one of those "Go Figure" recipes that turned out every bit as delicious as she said it would. You can taste a little of the sweetness, but it's a great variation and we enjoyed it very much.

Very good! Easy to do without a lot of fuss. I used 1/2 cup Emu 999 Australian Port and Prego Mushroom spaghetti sauce. It was just right! Another time I used ground turkey and it is still good. Thanks for a great recipe!
