I too increased the sauce recipe - tripled it actually. Husband requests I make it again!
Freezes well.

This was very good. It's similar to my own recipe, but I never thought of adding the sausage to the sauce. It definitely took it to the next level. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!

I simmered this in a crock pot all day and it turned out great. Served about 10. Even better as leftovers as the sauce thickens a bit. It was a huge hit with everyone and it's the first recipe in my cookbook! Thank you Karen for helping me fool people into thinking I'm a great cook. Credit goes to you.

I have made this more times than I know but never rated it! My husband loves it and 2-year-old eats it up. The only thing I do differently is double the sauce and keep the meatball amout the same. Really great flavor!

This is it. Look no farther. We've had spaghetti on Sundays and every Christmas my whole life and I tried this recipe. I had to almost triple the recipe and it still worked deliciously by making it my own. Make it as it is or take her advice and add a little, cook a little, taste.....And I took her advice on the meatballs and they stayed together. It seems my whole family, (mother and 4 siblings) new this trick but me. Never again will I fear my meatballs falling apart and I didn't use eggs. I got compliments and that is saying a lot coming from an Italian family that has had many spaghetti sauces. This is now mine. Thank you so much for posting it.

Fantastic, prepared exactly as written, absolutely no problems with the meatballs binding, sauce was awesome, though next time I will double the sauce, lotsa meatballs but not quite enough sauce for us, will decrease the amt. of hot pepper flakes, was a little too intense for my DS's. Thank You Karen From Colorado!
