Holly’s Note:
My sister got this recipe from Jr. High School Home Ec. Back in the day when we had Home Economic classes. I make the sauce alone, tripling the recipe, and then freeze it flat in bags and use it as Spaghetti Sauce. My family prefers it over any canned or jar sauce. When I prepare the lasagna, I prepare a 9x9 pan for our family and then freeze a 9x9 pan for later.

  2. Much easier and faster than the one I've grown up with. Stewed tomatoes, who would have thought. Looks yummy.
