Uncommonly Good Spicy Spaghetti Sauce

Submitted by: SHARRY021

Introduction

I have had many compliments on this sauce. Not only is it easy to customize to individual taste, It is a quick dinner to prepare for a large group, and freezes well. I always have some on hand for unexpected guests. I have had many compliments on this sauce.

  • Sauce wasn't spicy at all so that disappointed me, BUT it was full of everything a sauce should have and my family loved it. Maybe I'll add crushed red chili flakes or chopped serrano pepper next time. Will def. make again. Thanks for sharing! - 9/16/11
