Tuesday, September 19, 2006 The Best Spaghetti Sauce You've Ever Tasted

Now we all HAVE to try this one, to see if it really is the best! Read the entire email that Rose Marie sent me, below. :) It sounds like a real winning recipe, if you ask me!

Hi Christina,

Linda in your newsletter asked for a spaghetti sauce recipe and here is the oneI tried that is one from one of my other newsletters and it was delicious. My husband loved it and took the little bit of left overs I had to work the next day and one of his co-workers tried it and had to have the rescipe. To date I have given this recipe to over 50 people! One note is that I used the pre-cooked Italian meatballs from Sam's Club. They are so much eaiser than taking the time to make your own from scratch, especially when you are in a hurry to get dinner on the table fast. She could use her own recpe for the meatballs if she wants, as long as she cooks them first before adding them to the sauce.

This spaghetti sauce is remarkably good - and it is sweet. It is also different from any you've ever made, as the secret ingredient is bread & butter pickles. Don't knock it until you've tried it; everyone who eats it loves it as much as my family.

1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 T. olive oil
1-1/2 c. chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T. flour
1 c. bread and butter pickles, chopped fine (measure after chopping)
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
6 oz. tomato paste
1 t. salt
2 t. oregano
2 t. basil
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 c. red wine (optional)

Brown ground beef and onion in oil. Add chopped garlic and fry a minute longer. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook 15 minutes more to thicken. Serve over hot spaghetti.You'll be sorry if you leave the pickles out of this. They are the secret that makes this the best spaghetti sauce you'll ever eat!
