      I have made this sauce many times....One year I made around 30 quarts of it. I lined quart sized yogurt tubs with freezer bags, filled, twist tied them shut and froze them upright. Later after they were completely frozen I pulled the bags out and stacked them like cord wood along the short wall of my chest freezer. We at this at least once a week over the winter and never tired of it. It makes excellent pizza sauce/bruschetta.

      I halved the recipe and got 7 quarts of sauce. Very tasty! I'm impressed as this was my first attempt at canning and it seemed to work. :)

      I, like the others, had never made spaghetti sauce from scratch. I like "from scratch" cooking when possible, and I liked this recipe quite a bit. I cut the recipe down to 2 servings (which is really about 10). I found it needed to be cooked for about an hour and a half after boiling (cook time was never mentioned). I also found it a bit sweet, but a little more salt took care of that. Otherwise, DELICIOUS.
