    This is a great sauce, I did add my little changes though, I started by roasting my roma tomatoes and my fresh bulb of garlic with a drizzle of evoo. While that was going I started browning my ground beef and sweet italian sausage with my chopped onion and basil, italian seasoning, red peppers and seasoning salt. Then I cooked my fresh mushrooms in white wine until wine reduced by two teaspoons. When my tomatoes and garlic were ready, I put them in electric chopper with a little wine, basil, oregano, italian seasoning , tomatoe paste, and water. Then I added the tomatoe mixture to my meat that I had drained of fat. I added my mushrooms and fresh parsley and parm cheese. I let it simmer for 1 1/2 hrs stirring every 15min or so. Then I poured over my pasta Top my dish with a little jack and parma cheese and fresh black pepper and garlic seasoning blend. Made garlic cheese bread Then we threw down eating this one up!!!!!.  -  27 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a perfect recipe to use to get a general idea on how to make a spaghetti sauce. I used all the ingredients but measured according to my own taste which made it great! ADD sugar and salt. USE fresh garlic over garlic powder.  -  21 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Use 1/2 T. of each herb if you don't add ground beef. If you do add meat to the sauce use 1 T. otherwise the meat will overpower the sauce and it will be bland. I also added 1/2 red bell pepper chopped in food processor (gives it a sweetness so you don't need sugar) and 1/4 tsp. cayenne. I went with 1 head of garlic cloves instead of garlic powder. To me, this tasted like high end jarred sauce which is what my 3 young kids like, something simple (and I don't like Prego or Ragu). This is a recipe we'll add to our recipe book. Thanks!  -  10 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
