Ground beef makes this thick spaghetti sauce hearty, and the herbs give it a wonderful flavor. I think it’s the best spaghetti sauce I’ve ever had. —Anne Halfhill, Worthington, Ohio

"I like this recipe very much. It reminds me of a thicker version of my mom's spaghetti sauce."

"My husband and I thought this sauce was really good. I made it with the condensed soup per the recipe. Don't like rosemary, though, so I omitted it. I've made it several times."

"Did you try the recipe both ways (soup vs tomatoes)? What size of tomato? Roma? What size of can diced tomatoes"
