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 is really a PHENOMINAL spaghetti sauce recipe! It tastes TRULY authentic! To give the sauce a VERY DELICIOUS zip I added between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red peppers before cooking the sauce. As far as the sugar goes, I put in a full 2 tablespoons and it seems to be PERFECT! I agree that it's the sugar that really makes this sauce great! I also agree that I will never buy already made spaghetti sauce again! This recipe has spoiled my family and has brought our spaghetti dinners to a whole new level!"

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.

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.
