Personal Notes:
Judy is the wife of Jack Hollenshead, Jr., the Editor of this cookbook. She is the daughter-in-law of the late Jack & Dorothy (Bellew) Hollenshead. This recipe was from an Italian neighbor who lived across the street when I was growing up in Austin, Texas. The spaghetti sauce has a wonderful flavor and is well worth the trouble to make it from scratch. Sauce and meatballs can be frozen.
