Zesty Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

60 mins (prep 15, cooking 45)
18 ingredients
6-8 servings
I started off with my family's favorite recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce, which is very good but a bit mild for my preference. So I kept adding certain ingredients until I was satisfied, and I ended up with the recipe posted here. I have added red pepper flakes on occasion too, but that makes the sauce a bit spicy and "over the top" for my kids.
