Garofalo Spaghetti Sauce

Looking for comfort food?  Spaghetti always does it for me.  Growing up Catholic in the 60’s meant you couldn’t eat Meat on Fridays, or you might go to Hell.   So our Mom (her maiden name being Garofalo) served Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce every Friday (only in those days we just said “spaghetti without meat”).   The sauce is very simple but I think the best I have ever tasted (as good as any Italian family restaurant found in Tuscany).  Only once have I found a similar-tasting sauce and that was at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.   My sauce yields 3 cups.   I usually use two cups to whatever pasta I am serving that night
