One of my favorite and most comforting things to make is homemade spaghetti sauce. I have been tinkering with my sauce for years now and I think I have perfected it. This sauce is perfect by itself, great with meatballs and delicious over pasta. It can be frozen and defrosted for a quick, weeknight meal. Enjoy!
