"This recipe has many vegetables and three kinds of meat. Most people can't tell it's not all beef and I've been told I ought to market it. This sauce has no acidic after taste, which is frequent with sauces that have tomato and/or bell pepper cooked over long periods of time. This sauce freezes well and can be used for other recipes." — Jeanne Gold

This sauce was outstanding. Im not a meat lover so i just used a couple packs of turkey sausage and deleted the ground beef and turkey. I also added some mushrooms. It was excellent. Has a great taste. My husband told me to never buy grocery store sauce again.
This "sauce" came out more like goulash, and I wouldn't make it again.
This recipe really exceeded my expectations. The flavor is great and my husband didn't notice the squash at all! (He HATES squash) I scaled the recipe for 6 servings with no problem & used zucchini instead of yellow squash. I also substituted turkey sausage that I had on hand for the kielbasa. It's a flexible recipe that you can make hours ahead, try it!
I have to say this sauce was tasty!!! A great base recipe to modify to your own tastes. I thought it was a little too chunky, but my husband thought it was perfect. "More meat next time" is all he said. Next time I will add pork ribs and chicken pieces. Thank you Jeanne!
Considering the time this recipe takes to make, and the outcome (more like goulash and not quite spicy enough), I wouldn't make it again. Not bad, just not what I had expected.
So much work. So not worth it. Spaghetti Sauce should have some spice to it, this did not. Very disappointed.
Wonderful! We made several batches and froze. We will make even more sauce this year because we absolutely love this recipe.
This sauce was incredible...i made it for my family and they gobbled it right up. Now i make it in large quantaties so i can freeze it for when i need a quick and delicious homemade meal!
