    KIM WILSON's Note:

    The longer you let it cook the more the flavor stands out. After I've cooked it for an hour, I usually add meatballs or sausage, and let them cook right into the sauce. My Grandmother used to make it in the morning for dinner that night.

      Sorry, Kim, I was not impressed. As a matter of fact, quite disappointed. Disappointed because the meatballs you posted are great, and I was hoping the sauce would be just as good. In all fairness, I did not add meatballs to the sauce, I did cook exactly as posted though. I am not a big fan of tomatoes. I am starting to think maybe I just don't like spaghetti sauce. I guess that isn't a fair statement, because I do love it when my Dad (born and raised in Italy) makes his homemade sauce with pasta. I haven't used his recipe because he uses meat, I tried this recipe because I wanted to stay away from a meat sauce. What does, or should spaghetti sauce really taste like? I can't even describe the flavor when my Dad cooks pasta, but it is good. I guess what I didn't like most was it was way too thick for my liking. I like a really "light" sauce. I guess I could have, should have used less paste. Anyway, sorry to say, won't be making this search continues for a great meatless spaghetti sauce.
