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!

This sauce is delicious. Before I got this recipe I use to use Ragu or Prego spaghetti sauce. It never tasted right. This just screams Italian. Thanks.

never a disappointment. I prefer carrots over peppers.

This was some of the best spaghetti I've made so far. I made a large amount and the whole family ate off of it for the next three days. It even tasted better after a day or two. Thanks for the recipe.

Tastes great. I changed a few things. I halved the sugar and added a Half a cup of wine, did half Italian sausage and half beef and used two can of diced tomatoes. Next time I will also blend th tomatoes more since mine cam out more like marinara.

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.

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.
