  1. Thanks for the comment -- and what a coincidence. Hillsboro is my hometown! The spaghetti sauce looks great. I love the texture of the sauce when it's been slow cooking all day ...

  2. Green olives??.. I LOVE green olives!!.. but I never thought about putting them in my spaghetti sauce! It DOES sound delicious, though, CC, so I'll have to try this sometime soon! Thanks for the recipe! ~tina

  3. Sausage makes the difference. Also Worcestshire sauce. Looks tasty.

  4. Oh, how great this recipe sounds. I can smell it cooking! Sadly, my stomach will not tolerate any tomato base any longer...what a drag! So I'll just enjoy reading and imagining that great taste. :0)

    Thanks so much for coming by for a visit. I'm always happy to hear from you.

    I wish your New Year to be merry and bright with more bliss than ever!

    Scatter Bliss..
