Claire's Sketti Sauce for Picky Eaters (1/2 C)

Submitted by: CMBELISLE

Introduction

I created this recipe in my teens using my mother's recipe combined with parts of a meatballs recipe I found in an old Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Originally, it had green peppers, mushrooms, olives, and celery in it. Thanks to the picky eaters in my family, I reduced the veggies while maintaining the flavor. The sauce brand and flavor is your choice, but I typically use the traditional Ragu.

This sauce is usually even better after a day in the fridge and reheated.
