"I absolutely love this spaghetti sauce, it's got just the right amount of heartiness and sauciness, not too runny and not too dry. I added 1 can of hot rotel tomatoes the second try and I also use fresh garlic when sauteing the onions. Love it! Thanks!"

"Simple and easy, this recipe is excellent! I used my home grown tomatoes instead of can crushed and fresh basil not dried --and everyone loved it. Made this several times and will make many more times"
