After being married , for almost a quarter of a century, I have learned some great recipes from my husband. Okay, I have to admit he is the chef in the family; nevertheless, I have been able to watch and observe his cooking techniques. I am quite proud of how far my spaghetti sauce has progressed through the years! I find the secret is to add a little sugar to the sauce. Well, I go a little overboard with the sugar. I just love how it balances off the sauce against the other herbs and spices. Even one of my nieces, who does not care for spaghetti, tried my sauce and exclaimed, I am the best spaghetti maker ever! Now making fresh pasta is another story. Anyone else have significant others who have taught you some great Italian recipes?
