This spaghetti sauce recipe comes from "Extending the Table", a collection of recipes from around the world. The notes say that it comes from the Sicilian American community. Now I have to tell you, this is a GREAT recipe. My boys (husband and roommate) who will eat anything, but only give 5 stars to the recipes that are in danger of being inhaled, give this one 5 stars. I had to beat my husband to make him stop licking the crockpot! :) It tastes a little sweet, mostly savory, and very herby. Don't use more of the herbs than is listed, or they will overwhelm the sauce, though you can certainly use less.
