I have been using this recipe for over 35 years. It makes a very hearty spaghetti sauce that can really fill you up. Great with a nice salad and buttery-yummy-cheesy Garlic bread

  1. Cook meat, drain fat. Add onions and bell peppers and cook until meat is browned and vegetables are tender.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for 1-1/2 hours. While the sauce is simmering you can cook the pasta you choose to serve with this sauce.
  3. Drain spaghetti and serve with sauce, top with cheese and serve with garlic toast. This is better the next day, if there is enough left.
