This is a recipe my mother made for us while growing up. With eleven children to feed she made her Homemade Spaghetti with meatballs and sausage almost every Sunday. My mother was one who would say if you kids want to learn to cook watch me. Well, I was one who did watch, and I think it is real close to hers.
