Bacon and Pepper Spaghetti Sauce
A fresh, robust spaghetti sauce, made for those who love flavor. This is the only spaghetti sauce recipe I make, nothing I've ever had compares. Great for large family dinners, or if you're serving just a few this recipe makes enough to freeze your leftovers! HINTS* -I use all fresh ingredients, however, dried ingredients can be used. -I prefer this sauce served over Campanelle pasta and topped with grated mozzarella.
