RECIPES / Pasta
This is one of my favorite things that my mom made (and still makes). When I got my first apartment in 1976, she sent me a recipe book and included her "secret" spaghetti sauce recipe. I always imagined that this took hours of work... was I surprised to see that it all came from cans and it was the cooking of it that took so long. It creates a thick sweet sauce and was a favorite family meal.
