READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by Luke Meakins

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.
