Three-Meat Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

“I simmer this hearty sauce in large batches, freeze it and use it for spaghetti, lasagna, mostaccioli and pizza,” writes Ellen Stringer of Fairmont, West Virginia. “I adapted the original recipe until I came up with the perfect sauce. I've received many compliments from friends and family. I simmer it in a large electric roaster instead of on the stovetop,” she says.

MY REVIEW

"This is a delicious recipe. Very easy to prepare. I added fresh garlic. Only had sweet italian sausage on hand, and decided not to add the other meats to save calories. Due to the omitted ingredients, I only filled the empty 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes halfway with water, and used one can of tomato paste. Someone said too much water with three cups, so I ended up using about 2. Threw in extra dried parsley, grated real parmesan that was on hand...this was excellent served with angel hair pasta!"

"3 Cups of water + Sugar = watery, gross, sweet spaghetti. That is NOT what spaghetti is supposed to taste like!"
