Spaghetti Sauce

This sauce came from a good friend's Italian Mother-in-law. It is easy, and by far the best homemade sauce I know of. Great for both Spaghetti and Lasagna. Pssst...the secret is the sugar!

Pretty good sauce. I added fresh basil and sage and the flavor is better than I expected.

Needs a bit more flavor for my liking but not bad though overall.

Will try substituting some wine for the sugar next time but great taste overall.

Nice tasting sauce. Use some Italian sausage and chuck in some wine (reducing the sugar) and take it up a level.

This sauce was pretty tasty. I had to add more salt, pepper and garlic because it was a little bland. It was also a little too sweet; next time I will use less sugar.

My family of 6 really liked this sauce....even my 2 yr. Old! I DIDN'T know about adding sugar, so thank you very much for that!

This was easy and really good. I used Italian sausage instead since I had meatballs and it was still killer!

Never add meat to your sauce. Meat should be separate with a little sauce. Adding meat completely changes the flavor.

Very happy with results. A must to try and plenty of options to modify If desired as others mentioned. Thank you.

Really good. I modified it a bit and used Italian sausage, skipped the bell peppers and used crushed whole tomatoes only.

I usually don't change recipes until after I try it the first time to the letter. This one I just adjusted a few things, I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef, added a can of tomato paste and omitted the parsley (it wasn't in the directions anyhow). To the person who thinks 5 cloves of garlic is too much; it's cloves of garlic, not entire heads of garlic. THIS IS AN AWESOME RECIPE! Thank you so very much!
