Karla's Spaghetti Sauce

Karla Everett


I came up with this sauce years ago and its a family favorite , my girls always asks me to make it when they come for dinner.

I use this sauce on alot of my recipes like my spanish green beans that are posted here also.

This sauce freezes great.

I don't measure my seasoning , so this is a ruff estimate. season to your liking .
