"This started out being my recipe for spaghetti sauce, but when I taught my husband to make it, he improved it so it's now his. Our son, when he was young, was very concerned that he always be able to make Dad's sauce, so he watched and wrote down the recipe. I'm posting it here, so he can access now that he's grown and away from home."
