      This spaghetti sauce was easy to make. The variation we used was to add the red wine. So the sauce has a nice full flavor. I only thing I wanted to add with the wine after we tasted it was mushrooms. But since I had none we'll have to try that another day. This is one of the recipes from Pick A Chef Orphanage 2006. I picked two of Eva99's recipes to make.

      I have that book and this is the recipe I have used for Spaghetti and Meat Sauce for years. I always add the red wine and sometimes the mushrooms if I have them. A wonderful rich sauce full of flavor! Thanks for sharing!
