Holly’s Note:
My sister got this recipe from jr. high school home ec. I make the sauce alone, tripling the recipe, and then freeze it in bags with my foodsaver and use it as spaghetti sauce. My family prefers it over any canned or jar sauce. I make a 9x9 pan for our family and then freeze a 9x9 pan for later.
