    Luke Meakins's Note:

    This is a hearty (meaty) yet tangy spaghetti sauce that I have tweaked to almost perfection. A must try for any Italian food lovers out there.

      Very Good. I used fresh tomatoes though since I have so many. And fresh basil. Other than that, I followed this recipe.

      My 11 year old made this as a math project. He used all ingredients and exact measurements. It is wonderful. Easy to make. Worth the extra time.

      My family loved this sauce. Instead of 2 Cups of water I added 1 cup white wine and 1 cup of water and it was very good. This is one that I will keep and I am making it again and will double the recipe and freeze some.....Thanks for sharing this! :)
