“This is a simple spaghetti sauce to make that doesn't require the Tomato Juice to be simmered for hours so that it is thicker. I have adapted it from my Aunt Sharon's spaghetti sauce recipe this year, and when I told her what I had done, she told me I had created a new recipe. The secret is the Roma Tomatoes. This takes about two hours of cooking then simply can it. I use this for Goulash, Spaghetti, and Lasagna. I usually try to get my kids, 3 and 5 to help juice the tomatoes. My 5 year old likes to turn the crank and my 3 year old fills the hopper.”
