Mom’s Sunday Tomato Spaghetti Sauce recipe

This is the spaghetti recipe that my mom has been making for years.  No, there’s not many measurements to it, that’s what makes it amazing.  Add as much or as little as you like, but this is about the “gist” of the amazing-ness that comes out of it on those Sunday afternoons when you throw this together and just smell it all afternoon long!!  :)  Everyone will love this, I guarantee it…and will probably ask for seconds…so you may want to double it!  :)  ENJOY!
