"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
From Phyllis: The only thing I can remember differently is that at times if there were a lot of green peppers around Daddy chopped those up and sautéed them with the onions, parsley and garlic. You may want to change your seasonings around to your own taste. I actually add more sweet basil then I said. I go by the palm of my hand and I guess that is 2 tablespoons. Instead of regular spaghetti we often use rigatoni pasta After is has simmered for about 2 hours you may want to add more salt, but I have found that by having the tsp of sugar in the sauce it cuts down by 2/3's the amount of salt that you need. ENJOY.....Don't forget the Romano or Parmesan Cheese!
