In Search of the Ultimate Spaghetti/Pizza/Pasta Sauce

This may be hard to believe, but the best pasta sauce I ever had was in a small restaurant in San Carlos, Mexico. When we got back home I decided to start experimenting to see if I could duplicate and this is pretty darn close. If you prefer a smooth sauce, substitute tomato sauce for the diced tomatoes. Fresh mushrooms can also be added if desired. Fresh Italian sweet sausage can be used Italian Sausage or, I highly recommend Kittencal's Kittencal's Italian Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meatballs (I wasn't a meatball lover until I tried these.) Next time I make I'm going to try adding diced roasted red peppers. Based on comments of others, the plan is to continue refining this recipe. I look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions!. I serve on my Perfect Egg Pasta and save the leftover sauce to use on a pizza.
