The Great Indoors – Woody’s Spaghetti Sauce

Who doesn’t love a good spaghetti sauce especially when it’s packed with healthful, filling ingredients?

That’s what Concordia College Cooking Show Host and KVRR Reporter Hannah Johnson showed me on this weeks’ Great Indoors.

“Woody’s Spaghetti Sauce” is named for Hannah’s grandfather who made the sauce as long as she can remember. Not only is it easy to make, it’s delicious, and it’s a good way to sneak your veggies into your diet. Power packed with flavor and nutrition.
