Grandma Maggio's Spaghetti Sauce
September 08, 2011

Oh my goodness, this was FABULOUS! I unfortunately did not have the merlot (I had Lambrusco) nor did I have the amount of mushrooms (I only had 4oz canned) nor the amount of basil (my bush only had enough for 1/4 cup). Regardless of these 3 items, the other items required I did have on hand. Since I have cooked my own version of a sauce with the higher amounts of these items, I know how much BETTER this recipe would have been. I will make it again exactly as calls for, unless I prefer a lesser sweetness, but I found it quite enjoyable and a nice change form the standard type flavors. THIS SAUCE ROCKS!! Try it exactly as written, so you can get a great idea of the taste. Much thanks and appreciation for this wonderful keeper (at least in my family's cookbook) of a recipe. EDIT 09/11/2011 - To really make it special try adding the meatballs from 'lovestohost' - "Meatball Nirvana". Yowsa.
