Mama's Special Spaghetti
20 mins (prep 20)
14 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is my own special spaghetti recipe, honed over the years. This is a staple in our house, about once a week. (Note: This sauce is not the thick, jarred-type spaghetti sauce that we see in the stores or most restaurants. It might seem watery at first, but it really has so much more flavor than the sauces we are used to in America.)
