I Think I Got It Spaghetti Sauce

Linda Smith


When I got married 28 years ago I had no idea how to make spaghetti sauce just always used canned or jar sauces, this was one of my hubby's favorites and he did not like canned or jar, so he proceeded to teach me well before too long I was doing it myself but even though he liked it I didn't, was just not right so I kept adding or taking away until yesterday and I finally got it so I can be proud of it. So here it is, hope you enjoy.
