We put this sauce together a couple of weeks ago when I was out of town.  Sometimes we like recipes with a little more heat in them but, this spaghetti sauce – It’s really good 🙂  Spicy Spaghetti Sauce has just a little bit of kick to it, I’m not really into super spicy foods and this recipe was just about right for me.

I hope you enjoy Spicy Spaghetti Sauce…  This recipe used a lot of produce right from our garden so, it’s super healthy and it tastes wonderful too!
