flowerSpaghetti Sauce…the best!

I have never, so far, come across anyone that doesn’t like a good spaghetti dinner.  For a long time for some reason I could not make a good spaghetti sauce.

One weekend we decided to go and visit our friends in Ottawa.  When we got there I could smell this wonderful sauce that had been simmering for hours.  I couldn’t wait to taste it!

When dinner time came I eagerly came to the table..the smells!!!!  .I wasn’t disappointed!   I could have literally eaten the whole pot it was soooooo good!

So of course I had to get the recipe..and he was willing to share.  It did not take long after we got home that I wanted to try it.  It’s an easy recipe, goes together in short order and is deliscious. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
