Simple Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

My kids love spaghetti. It’s now my go-to meal when all the friends are over. They prefer it over pizza. Which is great! I used to buy jars of spaghetti sauce until I took a look at the label. I was shocked to find that sugar was an ingredient in a majority of the jars of sauce. Sugar, really? Do we really need sugar in our spaghetti? I put the jar back and decided to make my own.

Here is a simple spaghetti sauce recipe that is quick and easy to make. Plus your family will love it.
