  1. I can't wait to try this! And the name made me chuckle. :)

  2. Why is it called Spiro T Agnew sauce?

  3. Melissa,
    I'm not 100% sure. The recipe originally came from an old church fundraiser cookbook. I once read that spaghetti with meat sauce was one of Spiro Agnew's favorite home cooked meals. I like to think this might be his wife's actual recipe, but we'll probably never know for sure!
