This recipe was brought back from Italy by my husband's grandfather. It is a family favorite! For sauce with meatballs, shape 6 pounds ground beef into balls. After sauce has simmered, place meatballs in sauce and simmer for additional 4 to 5 hours. Stir occasionally.

Great spaghetti recipe. However seems to be made for a huge party. My fault for not converting the 12 quarts to something I can relate to. Be warned this is made for a large party or for storage. Adding a little red wine spices this up a bit. Read More

This is a great easy pasta sauce. I added mushrooms and didn't put the spices in until I took it off the stove (to avoid cooking out the flavor.) I also used more garlic because I'm a big fan of garlic. We will make this again! Read More

I was not impressed with this. It didn't have much flavor other than being too oniony and bell peppery. This recipe might be good if altered but it is not good as written. Read More

I ended up using a little extra spice and I think using olive oil as your oil will give it a more authentic flavor. Read More

A solid tomato sauce base! I can see this being great with some beef meatballs or pork Italian sausage. Read More
