Eva's Spaghetti Sauce

 I'm making up for lost time, and realized I never blogged about a favorite easy dinner. I hate referencing the pandemic in my blog posts, but this crazy time has me catching up on filing, blogging, reducing clutter and reconnecting with inventory in my home that I forgot about. Eva's Spaghetti Sauce was shared with me by one of my best friends when her mother Eva passed away. Donna grew up on this recipe, as it was a fairly inexpensive way to feed a family 50 years ago. Donna and I share a passion for cooking (she only uses organic and local grass fed meat), and quite a few of our text messages are inspired by what we have cooked that day. 
I took a photo of the recipe for Eva's spaghetti sauce for you. I printed out these recipe cards one Christmas, and gave our children a food basket for Christmas with all the ingredients to make this meal. If you try it, I'd love to hear if it becomes one of your favorites too. Even Joe gets excited when I tell him I'm making Eva's sauce. It's a comfort food, and he loves Donna as much as I do.

  2. Looks good, however I don't think i have ever used a recipe for making sauce - I always just 'wing it' lol. I add a little sugar to cut the acidity, too. I always say that I must have some Italian in me as I could live on pasta and sauce, however my DNA results disagreed!!

  8. Hope this isn't a duplicate as it didn't look like my comment was accepted. I usually go the simple route and use Rao's sauce from Costco but am looking forward to trying this much loved recipe! Thank you for sharing the recipe, Debbie!
