Very good. No need to change this recipe. Will definetely make it again. The family loved it.
This was my last attempt to make spaghetti sauce and I'm glad I tried this because this recipe is very good. So nice and thick and sticks to the spaghetti. Yes, it does make a lot but that's ok as we like the leftovers. I know we will be making this again and the only thing I would add would be some crushed red pepper for a little more hotness.
The whole family asked for this one a second time. Easy too.
Delicious! Makes a lot, which is great because we love leftovers!
