Hi Donna,

Sound good. Looking forward to hear how it tastes. I too make my own sauce. Tastes better then bought.

Hugs,

Myrna

Hi Linda,

When I make spaghetti I make my own sauce, similar to yours. I had thought about adding browned ground beef to this recipe. I think I will do that.

Thanks for the hints!

Hi Myrna,

Yeah, the jars of pasta sauce are usually too sweet for my liking, but I am making this for my daughter-in-law and grandchildren and they don't cook from scratch, so they prefer the jars of spaghetti sauce. If it turns out well and I make it for my husband and myself next time, I will make my own sauce, too.
