Grandma Rosie's Extra Smooth Spaghetti Sauce

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"A mild sweet, super smooth pasta sauce that has become a family favorite! Makes a great sauce for meatballs. I recommend adding them and letting the entire pot simmer and meld. And remember, the bay leaf is lucky!"

This sauce is perfect for those who do not like chunks! Super smooth, not too watery. We love it.

This was okay but would have been much better if fresh basil and oregano were used. I topped with fresh parsley. I really feel this needs a fresh herb.
