Got a crowd to feed? Spaghetti is a favorite at the Crandals.
JANE CRANDAL'S SPAGHETTI
Coarsely. Start it frying on low heat with a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pot. Stir every couple of minutes. Peel and crush then add
5 - 10 garlic cloves
When onion is translucent, then add
1/2 cup chopped celery (optional)
4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (optional)
1 cup chopped mushrooms (one small can)
2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
3 15-ounce cans tomato sauce
When it reaches a simmer, reduce heat an let simmer for a half hour or until sauce is thickened. Adjust the seasoning (salt? pepper? paprika? a little sugar if it is too tart?)
While the sauce is simmering, put a big pot full 1 gallon of cold water on high heat.
When it comes to a boil, add
2 packages of pasta to the water.
Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.
Combine pasta and spaghetti sauce in a big bowl. It looks better if you dump in the pasta first.
