The only polish family in an Italian town, my mother was given this recipe by one of the neighbor Italian families in a little town in Pennsylvania where she was raised. Growing up, this was one of my favorite dinners, and also one of my friend’s favorites when they were invited to dinner (which was often). I’ve named it “Cherri’s Quick Spaghetti Sauce Recipe” as she took their recipe and modified it so she could make it quickly for our large family of 8.
My mom always served this sauce with thin spaghetti. My son prefers angel hair, but it works great with any type of pasta. Cherri’s Quick Spaghetti Sauce can be made for 10 servings, as shown below, or do what I do. Tripple the recipe and freeze the sauce into family size containers.
