I followed the recipe exactly- I didn't care for the sauce. Way too much sausage for the amount of sauce. I will have to try to somehow add sauce to this, sorry!

It's as classic and simple as can be and it took me back in time to a recipe in my younger days that we also used for pizza sauce. Perfectly delicious!

So easy to make and so delicious. My family LOVED it.

This is my new go-to spaghetti sauce recipe now. I made it as per the recipe and it is delicious!

Easy to make and delicious. Followed directions as instructed. Will make this again.

I didn’t have basil but I added 1 tablespoon of chicken flavor bouillon and it was amazing!! Definitely making this again.

Delish. Added extra finely cut mushies the family didn’t pick out & a grated carrot. No tinned tomato sauce in oz so did a tin of condensed tomato soup instead. Yum

The spaghetti sauce turned out very well. Because this is a hearty sauce, I used bow tie pasta and the meal was served with a side salad and fresh made garlic bread.

We used home caned tomato's and a tomato sauce we had on hand , and it was the Best Spaghetti sauce I have had in a very long time, This Is Just What I Was Looking For
