Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

Chock-full of hearty meat and vegetables, this sauce freezes beautifully—so I serve some on the same day I cook it, then pack the rest in airtight containers and freeze for up to 6 months. It's convenient to have on hand when unexpected company drops in...or whenever your busy day doesn't allow much time for cooking "from scratch"!—Carol Ulliac, Atmore, Alberta
