Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Recipe from Scratch

This homemade spaghetti sauce recipe from scratch is so easy to make and delicious.  I really love the taste of fresh sauce, there is no comparison to canned (or bottled for that reason). 

Make up some Italian meatballs and add to the sauce if you wish.  I also recommend serving some garlic cheese bread and a fresh salad with homemade Italian salad dressing.  A wonderful meal for family and friends alike.
