I have found some truly excellent spaghetti sauce recipes at allrecipes, but this one is the best. My son and wife both gave it two thumbs up. I did reduce the sugar by half and it was exactly the right amount, lending a taste of sweetness but not so sweet that it tasted like desert. The burgundy provided a twist which is hard to describe, but welcome nonetheless. It did not leave any sort of liquory flavor and did not overwhelm. Highly recommended. Authentically Italian.


This is really good, worth getting all the ingredients together. I used austrailian shiraz for the wine. Will definately make this again.


Very nice flavor, we loved it. I used ground beef in mine. I will make this sauce again but I will add more mushrooms and big chunks of peppers and celery because I like veggies in my sauce. Thanks Melinda I used the leftover sauce to make Pizza burgers and let me tell you the sauce is even better the next day. I had leftover burger patties I put them in a bun with cheese and then the sauce in between and on top of the bun with a little bit of grated cheese. They were good.
