Supper Spaghetti Sauce – Recipe Redux

Recipe ReDux played a little party game for the end of 2016: We had to grab our nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 201, 16, 216 – or any combo of the number “2016”.  I pulled out my mom’s cookbook copyright 1955; a classic with some oldies, goodies and not so goodies. i was preparing sauce for Christmas dinner and there was a sauce on page 216 “Supper Spaghetti Sauce”. My mom always called dinner supper so this was perfect.  The original had ground beef and chicken livers, chili powder and lots of salt.  I substituted white meat chicken sausage for the beef and livers added tons more veggies, no salt, basil,  a bit of wine and served it over whole wheat pasta.  Refreshing, satisfying and nutritious to go with the lasagna!
