Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
I already make a very similar recipe for pasta, okra dishes, Rice dishes, Baked Potatoe dishes, etc. I see a few people complaining a lot of this, and that, and not liking the recipe. Folks, THERE ARE NO RULES. YOU FIND WHAT YOU, OR YOUR FAMILY LIKES, AND CUSTOMIZE IT. If you don't like something in the recipe, either cut it out, or keep playing with varying amounts until you like the taste of your INDIVIDUALIZED sauce.If someone in the family doesn't like one spice or herb, make the sauce minus those things then add them after you have removed some portion for that sensitive person. Viola!Everyone is happy. Don't throw the baby and the bath water out, from one try. Experimentation is truly the fun in cooking. FYI, I use a lot of Onions, Mushrooms, Garlic (Italians call these, the "Holy Trinity") then I use just enough amount of EVOO (Cold pressed) with a long expiration date, for freshness, to saute the amount of onions, mushrooms, and Garlic; so it's definitely going to be more than the amount called for in this recipe. You don't want to burn the onions et al. Learn how to buy the best, freshest, flavorful EVOO; it makes a huge difference. Buy Evoo made within 6 months. Ones from overseas take months before they get here, and also are not pure, or Extra Virgin as they claim. Buy the ones made in California, USA, and "USDA/Organic" Certified. That way you are buying freshness, and guaranteed Organic quality. Mangia bene!!!
