Running Creek Spaghetti Sauce

"This has become a classic at our house. Sometimes I brown sausage and hamburger to add to it for meat suace or if I don't get lazy I make meatballs. We often freeze the leftover suace for quick weekday meals."

    Excellent sauce - made exactly as directed except I left out the mushrooms. I am wondering, though, is the fresh parsley necessary? I didn't notice the taste of it and went out to buy it specifically. Next time I'll try dried to see if I can taste the difference. I also might leave out the green pepper as my family is not a fan (although no one complained). Thank you for sharing your recipe!

    Great! Simmered most of the day then added Recipe #28248. Omitted the mushrooms cause the kids don't eat them. Guess I got distracted cause I added a third can of diced tomatoes (rather than whole) by mistake and added a cup of wine, again by mistake, because apparently I hallucinated those parts of the recipe LOL. It was still wonderful! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Loved this sauce! The smell permeating the kitchen was wonderful, I just had to keep sampling. I love this recipe because of all the spices. The only thing I changed, was I only used 1/2 pound of mushrooms and that was only because I am not a fan of the fungi but my husband is, so I met him halfway on the amount. Thanks for another great recipe, Roger!

For extra cash, we have a small herd of Texas Longhorns here in Ohio. We raise them for both show and beef. I go into withdrawal when we run out of our lean meat and have to buy the store bought meat. I have been involved in buckskinning (camping where tents, dress and everything conforms to pre 1840)for 15 years. We bought a motorhome last year so most of my camping has been modern style lately. My wife likes the conviences. I love nothing more than to sit around the camp fire all day and cook. If you run into me at a camp grounds, both modern and oldtime, bring your plate and hunger. There is always something on the fire. My rating system updated 8/06: When I first came to the Zaar, every recipe was great. I have become more critical 5 Stars - Fantastic recipe. I would pay for this dish in a restaurant and tell all my friends to try it. 4 Stars - Truely a great recipe that I would proudly serve to guests as is. May tweak a slightly. 3 Stars - So so. Didn't move us either way. Maybe a good basic recipe to build on or it may be be an item that doesn't normally grace our table. That will be stated. I may make again with changes. 2 Stars - Sorry nobody liked it. 1 Star - Don't know what went wrong, but something did. Nobody ate it. No clue what to do. <img < img src= "http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/completedbanner.gif"><img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/FFFFlag.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/chef3.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/Switzerland-FFF4.gif"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/BtoBHosts.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/SpoiledPetbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/400035_d7f1b969-m3_1217872626.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
