Next time I will NOT use shredded cheese. That was kind of a pain to deal with, cause it kept falling out while I was dipping it in the different things.

You can find this recipe HERE
I had made this before, I briefly talk about it in this post... This spaghetti sauce is so yummy. This time when I made it, I did it from fresh tomatoes! I have never done that before! So see, there's another thing I learned from doing this challenge. Our neighbor gave us a ton of fresh tomatoes, and they were all pretty ripe. I figured I needed to use them fast before they went to waste. So I decided to crush them myself and add them to this recipe! And if you know me, you know that I HATE tomatoes. I know, weird, huh? I try them all the time, but I just can't do it. So needless to say, I never want to see a tomato again, after doing this! I QUADRUPLED this recipe! Yes, you read right... I figured since we had so many tomatoes, why not make a big batch, and freeze it? PERFECT.
This pot was filled to the brim, in the picture you can see the ring where the sauce was before I put it in another pot with meat for dinner that night.
Seriously, before this I had NEVER made homemade spaghetti sauce. I just assumed it would be too hard, with too many ingredients. Boy was I wrong. This is so easy, and just so yummy.

A side note for a small family: When I started making this years ago, I would buy like a 3-4 lb roast and cook it the exactly the same as in the recipe, just don't shred it. Serve like a pot roast meal... potatoes, gravy, carrots, etc.... reserve the liquid in the fridge. Then the next day, dump the left over roast in a pot with reserved liquid, heat, shred, and you've got yourself some french dips! Two meals in one!
