A quick and tasty spaghetti sauce. I make it for my family all the time, and they love it. Spoon sauce generously over spaghetti noodles. Best served with generous portions of garlic toast.

Either there was a serious misprint on this recipe, or I was naive enough to fall for a joke. This gives new meaning to "Thats-a spicey sauce!" Even though I kept the teaspoons of pepper very scant, the recipe ended up totally inedible.

Ok, I got rid of the tomato sauce altogether and used double the tomato paste. I used 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning and 1 tablespoon of Oregano in place of all the other seasonings (too much spice otherwise). To give it more of a "rich" flavor I added one cup of red wine (Merlot, Cab, whatever you got). This removes a lot of the tomato-y (sp?) taste and gives the sauce a deep rich flavor and taste. The end result is a sauce that will go well on any pasta. No disrespect to the writer, I just put my .02 in the recipe.

I learned this recipe long ago from my Best friend's mother who is Italian, it has exactly the same ingredients but as many of reviewers mentioned, my original recipe uses 1/3 of the spices. I have to add that this is one of my husband's favorites.
