Mom's Italian Spaghetti Sauce

This is a recipe for an Italian meat sauce that simmers for several hours before it is ready to serve.  We serve the spaghetti topped with fresh parmesan cheese, and sometimes sautéed fresh mushrooms. A crisp salad and a loaf of garlic bread hot out of the oven is all you need for this family pleasing meal!
