Peggy’s Spaghetti

My favorite meal that grandmother, Peggy,¬†made was her famous spaghetti. When my grandmother passed away, everyone in my family got a copy of her recipe and we have all tried to emulate it as best we can. I think she left one thing out of her recipe though- her magic touch. And, sadly, that doesn’t come in a can.

I am normally not one to go for the meat option. I tend to always pick the all carb or vegetable dish at a restaurant. However, I think what makes this spaghetti so different from a spaghetti you would get a restaurant is that it has a meat based sauce. Even if you’re not a meat lover, you should give this simple spaghetti recipe a try!¬†ImageImageImageImage
