    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!

    My whole family LOVES this spaghetti sauce! I've been making it for several years now. I think the long simmer, as it instructs, REALLY makes this extra yummy!

    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

    Hmmm...I'd like to try putting this in the slow cooker after cooking the ground beef and veggies. I am looking forward to trying this.
