My parents got divorced when I was 12, and so began the tradition of "Spaghetti Night", which was every Monday when my father did not get home until 6:00 p.m. I was put in charge of making dinner - always spaghetti. I started off with frying up meat and onions, and adding a bottle of commercial spaghetti sauce. Over the years, it's evolved, quite a lot, to include a more generous quantity of vegetables, and to allow for the fact that I started to can my own tomatoes. It still appears on the table almost once a week though... This is not a thick, rich sauce. It's more chunky and a little soupy from the home-canned tomatoes. I tend to serve it with a stubby style of pasta, so I can eat it with a spoon.
