Quick Fix Spaghetti Sauce

Rose Mary Mogan


I call this a quick fix spaghetti sauce, because it is mostly made with canned ingredients, and it is merely a matter of adding the right amount of spices to give it that homemade flavor.

I made this to go with my Hungry Mans Turkey Meat Balls, then added some garlic bread and dinner was ready in no time. Today I will add a salad to go with it, and our dinner will be complete. This sauce was thick and rich and really complimented the turkey meat balls well.
