Magickal Meals: Home Made Pasta Sauce

Many years ago I was gifted a hand written cook book by an older Kitchen Witch. This has become my prize possession and has followed me in all my moves and travels, usually carefully packed right where I can see it!

This spaghetti sauce recipe is a firm favorite and seems to be loved by everyone who eats it. While it seems complex at first glance, it does all its cooking in a crock pot so you can put it together then simply walk away.

Eat it right away or bottle it for a later date.
