The Best Spaghetti Sauce

Celeste Drake


So I got really picky about m spaghetti sauce as I started getting older. I wouldn't touch canned/jarred sauce for anything and my mom put weird stuff in finally I came up with this recipe of my own...and I hate to toot m own horn, but I honestly have only tasted one other sauce that is better than this.
