Intalan’s Special Sauce

Henry Intalan. Grade 12

this special recipe was invented by my grandmother that was passed down to my mother and to me eventually. my family and visitors love it so much, they would ask for second servings! its a must that we prepare this special sauce whenever there’s a gathering in our house. this special kind of recipe will always be present during birthday celebrations or holidays or if you crave spaghetti so much make this now! me and my mom usually make large portions of this sauce, but can be cook partly.
