    This is a great family favourite- the classic beef and tomato pasta sauce. You can make the sauce ahead of time and freeze it as well.

    Very good. Instead of mixing I pour the sauce over the spaghetti and top with parmesan. Sometimes I add black olives to the sauce. Again, very good recipe.  -  19 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    THIS WAS GREAT, THO I DID CHANGE IT UP A TINY BIT..I ADDED THE TOMATO PASTE TO THE SAUCE WHILE IT SIMMERED INSTEAD OF TOSSING IT WITH THE SPAGHETTI NOODLES. I LIKE MY SAUCE ON TOP OF MY NOODLES..NOT ALL MIXED TOGETHER..JUST A PERSONAL PREFERENCE  -  21 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Great! Followed to the letter except for type of pasta and was delicious. Used red sundried tomato and herb pasta (so it was really red bowl!), which I'm sure added flavour, but spaghetti would be great too. Tossing with tomato paste is a great idea. Simple, chunky, tasty tomato sauce - whole family wouldn't have me change a thing (not even add olives!) Into the recipe book it goes.  -  06 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
