    Delicious! Out of all the spaghetti recipes ive got off other web sites this is by far the best. I would definetly recommend this if you want a large pot of delicious spaghetti.  -  11 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great, easy pasta sauce. I added mushrooms, and didn't put the spices in until I took it off the stove (to avoid cooking out the flavor.) I also used more garlic, because I'm a big fan of garlic. We will make this again!  -  17 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great spaghetti recipe. However seems to be made for a huge party. My fault for not converting the 12 quarts to something I can relate to. Be warned, this is made for a large party or for storage. Adding a little red wine spices this up a bit.  -  18 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
