This was extremely bland and tasteless. I won't be making it again.
This was really, really good! I threw this into the crockpot between church and going to the symphony because I knew I'd be short on time for making dinner by the time I got home again. I had this delicious sauce waiting for pasta when I returned. Very simple, very hearty and chunky, and quite tasty! My husband really hates jarred sauce, but he liked this very much. It really made a lot, too! We had lots of leftovers, and then I finally froze the last of it for a quick meal some other time.
This is the best spaghetti sauce I've ever made on my own. It's easy to throw together and makes a lot so there's some to freeze. This will be my go to recipe from now on.
very quick and easy!
my family thought it was a great spaghetti sauce, so we'll definetely make it again. I never have time to slow cook it though so i just simmer it awhile on the stove and it still tastes great. i also use it for my lasagna and was told that it was the best lasagna they'd ever had.
