I have two daughters. One does not eat meat and the other does not eat seafood. I created this so that I could cook something for both of them and have them for dinner at the same time. I will make meatballs and sauteed shrimp in separate pans and let them add whichever they choose. They both love the sauce.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 slices bacon -- diced
  • 1 medium onion -- chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic -- sliced
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes -- 28 oz
  • 1 can whole tomatoes -- 28 oz
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt- Lawry's red pepper type
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package spaghetti - Bucatini or Perciatelli
  • 2 teaspoons salt -- for water


  • Heat oil in pan on medium heat, add bacon and onion and cook until the onions are transparent, add garlic and dry ingredients.
  • Stir to prevent sticking or burning of garlic.
  • Add all other ingredients, blend and cover.
  • Cook on low heat stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Bring to boil 4 quarts of water.
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 teaspoons salt to water.
  • Add spaghetti and cook for 10-12 minutes.
  • Drain
  • This sauce works well with shrimp or meatballs. Serve with parmesan cheese and French bread.
