FANTASTIC!!! I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes since that's what I had in my cupboard and it still turned out excellent!!! The one other change I made was doubling the brown sugar [personal preference of course]. Definitely a 5-star recipe!!! TY for posting Ann Hugo!!! :D

This was a nice basic sauce, but I had to add huge amounts of seasonings to bring it 'up to snuff'. Given the quantities of meat and tomatoes, 1/4 tsp. of this and 1/4 tsp. of that was simply undetectable.

This was sensational. My family loved it. I didn't have the ground chuck or lean pork so i used what I had in my freezer which was a lb of ground turkey and 1 lb. of ground pork. It was so good I can't wait to have it again for lunch, and to freeze some for those busy days. It had such a sweet flavor to it, and very very meaty which is what my hubby liked. Thanks for posting this, will be making this one again.

Great sauce with plenty of meat. The only changes I made were to substitue red wine for the water, and I reduced the amount of salt. This was very good and the flavor was even better the next day. I froze the leftovers to use in the future.

This has become our new favorite spaghetti sauce recipe! I substituted merlot for the water and only added 1 can of tomato paste, but other than that, stuck to the recipe. The family loved it and when we are looking for a change from meatballs with are noodles, I'll be making this again! Thanks for the recipe!

This is a delish sauce! I doubled the recipe so I could freeze a ton and I'm so glad I did. You can eat this sauce without the spaghetti. I did wine instead of water but I kept everything else the same. Thank you for posting this one! I'm going to post a picture tomorrow.

I just made it sans simmer time (I couldn't wait), and I tried it out on some French bread. Very wonderful, but just a tad salty. I'll reduce that just a bit next time. Excellent.
