“This was my Grandma Sloop's recipe for spaghetti sauce. She used fresh garlic from the garden, and homemade tomato juice canned from tomatos out of the garden...she always made it with meatballs, and my mother makes it with 1 lb of ground beef...I however love it meatless! This is very very garlicky so it might not be everyone's cup of tea...I use the minced garlic you buy in a jar in the produce section - makes it very easy!”
