Gramma's Spaghetti Sauce (Cheater "from Scratch")

"This is my mother's recipe for spaghetti sauce and is wonderful! It is a chunky, meaty sauce. We usually make this in two 5 quart pots and freeze them in 2-3 cup portions, great for OAMC. It uses jars of spaghetti sauce for ease and flavor, you could also purchase a warehouse sized can of spaghetti sauce and flavor to taste to cut costs. Also add more vegetables as desired and if the mixture is too thick add another jar or a can of sauce."
