This is so good. It's a little different, but still delicious. I served garlic bread and a salad.

I found this spaghetti sauce recipe years ago and enjoyed making it for my 3 daughters! They loved it! Found it again today and will be making it tonight. Going to add some garlic and oregano with it.

I made the sauce and it was okay. Very basic and a bit unusual but I was missing my garlic. So then I went and changed it all together. I added fresh basil, fresh tarragon, garlic, and a little bit of red wine vinegar.

Very good and a bit different than the usual tomato sauces... I made this a while back and am looking forward to making it again tonight along with a recipe for linguine with spicy garlic oil that I found in another magazine...

I wanted to try a spaghetti sauce that was a bit different. I ran across this one that sounded good. Well, it was more than good; the black olives did the trick, I think. My husband says to make it again the next time we have spaghetti.
