"Different people look for different things in a spaghetti sauce. In fact, your spaghetti sauce says alot about you as a person. This is undoubtedly the best spaghetti sauce I have ever had! It is full-bodied but balanced. It is meaty yet the meat does not overwhelm the flavor. With a sprinkle of parmesan, a french baguette and a red wine on the side this sauce creates the perfect evening! I'm love this chef!!"
"Excellent sauce Bev! I usually make my own recipe that I have been making for years so I thought I would try something different and we all enjoyed this very much!! Sure made alot of sauce I was able to feed 5 of us and still had plenty left over. I froze the rest for another day. I didn't add mushrooms but put plenty of parmesan cheese on. Delicious, thanks for sharing."
"Bev, your spaghetti sauce is out of this world delicious!!! This was THE BEST I have ever had. I was already looking forward to having the leftovers tonight as I was eating it last night!! I followed the recipe to a "T" except for the bay leaves,only because I didn't have any on hand. Thank you, thank you for posting this!!!"
"I made this recipe this weekend at my son's request for italian food. I did add a few more cloves of garlic but that was the only change. Bev, this was great. Just spicy enough. DH said it was the best Spaghetti I have ever made. Served this with a green salad and homemade bread sticks. Excellent dinner. Thanks Bev!"
"What a wonderful spaghetti sauce! It's full of flavor. Thanks Bev."
"I join the others in saying this is, by far, the best spaghetti sauce I've ever eaten. A real keeper and will be made often. Thanks so much for sharing. "
"I enjoyed your recipe very much!!!I just doubled everything and added sweet sausage to it we all thought it was great!!! This will be my recipe every time!!! Thank you!"
"I absolutely LOVED this spaghetti sauce. I don't usually have the time to make sauce from scratch, but this is one recipe I will definitely allow time for - a couple time a month. My husband and 4 1/2 yr old enjoyed it as well. What yummy confort food! Thanks a lot for sharing your sauce with us, Bev. It's become a part of our Sunday menu."
"Great sauce. Everyone really enjoyed the meal. This was the first time I have cooked my own spaghetti sauce so thanks for helping me look good."
"Absolutely STELLAR! I didn't have the tomato paste, but had plenty of home-canned sauce and stewed tomatoes. I just reduced the juice from the stewed tomatoes, and simmered a little longer to thicken up. I can NOT say how amazing this sauce is!"
"Bev, your recipe for this spagetti sauce is similar to my own. I usually add just a bit of sugar to offset the acidity of the tomatoes. A pinch of msg, a portion of chopped green pepper, and a splash of gallo's sweet vermouth or wonderful reunite lambrusco wine (lambrusco is the perfect wine to serve with a spaghetti meal)...voila...spaghetti sauce a'la ruth. I can see why you are getting rave reviews. My family wants me to start an italian restaurant! Not at my age (54), i'll continue to serve it to my family, thank you. I look forward to checking out your other recipes. "
"WOW, Bev!! This is a great spaghetti sauce! I couldn't remember if I had rated this yet, lol. I have used your recipe so many times! (with a few additions.) Hubby doesn't like meat in his spaghetti so I omit it when I make for spaghetti nite. I use 5 cloves garlic, ( love garlic )minced, and also 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes for heat and brown sugar. I simmer for about 4-6 hours, very low simmer. I have used your spaghetti sauce recipe to make Baked ziti, ( I do use the ground beef in this ) and this sauce recipe for Kittencal's Famous Italian Melt-In-Mouth Meatballs for meatball subs. I always have leftovers, as its only my hubby and I at home now. I freeze and use when needed. This is the only sauce my hubby wants me to use for saucey Italian meals! Thanks again Bev for another amazing recipe!....carmen"
"Made this minus the meat and it was still pretty good! Tossed in some vegan eggplant "meatballs" toward the end. I liked the addition of the mushrooms too. Thanks!"
"As a beginning cook examining the recipe, it looks like a 5-star! As a pre-diabetic, I recommend making 2 substitution to the recipe as is: replace the salt with equal amounts of "No Salt," and replace the ground beef with equal amounts of 100% ground turkey breast."
"we made this tonight (minus the mushrooms because i forgot them ha) and we used textured vegi protien instead of the meat (we are vegan, for health) it was AMAZING thanks you so much for sharing this.. yummy"
"After trying many spaghetti sauces I finally found One that I like that is just right! Thanks for a great recipe and will be my regular for now on. I used diced tomatoes with mixed herbs as I had no plain ones so I omitted the oregano and dried basil but used everything else and it turned out yummy! It's great to use a recipe that also doesn't need sugar!It made more than 4 servings for us so I might half it next time or put some in the freezer! Thanks!"
"Bev, I must admit that I have never made my own spaghetti sauce. This is mainly because my hubby isn't fond of spaghetti sauce, so it never seemed worth the time to make my own. But I decided to try it out, and man, am I ever glad I did! It was VERY easy to make and VERY tasty as well. Hubby actually told me that he would eat more spaghetti if I "bought" this kind of sauce for it. Boy, was he ever surprised! Thanks for sharing!"
"This sauce should come with a warning to leave the house as it simmers! This is the best combination of spices I've ever had in a spaghetti sauce. I hope there is some left for my family: )"
"This is very delicious spaghetti sauce! I made it just as stated and it turned out perfectly. My family enjoyed it immensely. I had plenty left over so I am freezing it to use at a later date for lasagna or stuffed shells. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe, Bev."
"This is the best spaghetti sauce I have ever made. It has a good flavor, and is easy to make."
