Mom's Spaghetti Sauce

Brandi Kirkpatrick


This recipe was a staple growing up in a family of eight, six of which were male! To this day it is the most requested and desired meal when the family is all together. My mom has even gotten to the point where she freezes it for when the boys come home on holidays they can take a small tub home. I don't believe there has ever been a time that this was made that mom wasn't always getting after us to stay out of the sauce before dinner!
