Simple Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

My wife and I decided it was time to have spaghetti so I decided to cook one of my son’s favorite spaghetti sauce recipes. ( This recipe is simple and delicious and once we tried it; it has became one of our favorites. For this meal we added hot butter milk biscuits, it also goes great with garlic toast. Enjoy
