Rena Scarpino's Spaghetti

This is the best spaghetti sauce you will ever eat. I like to make big batches of this and keep it in my freezer for those days I just don't feel like cooking...which is often lately.

Rena Scarpino's Spaghetti

1 lb. pork, cut into small pieces (2-3 chops), or beef chunks can be used
1 large can tomato juice
3 gloves garlic
1 Tbsp. dried parsley
3 dried red peppers (or to taste)
3 bay leaves
1 tsp. salt

Brown meat. Salt and pepper. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 2-3 hours with lid off. The sauce will thicken.  Remove bay leaves and peppers. Correct seasoning. Cook 2 lbs of spaghetti and drain. Mix with 3 oz. Parmesan cheese and 2 Tbsp. butter. Add sauce and let set with the lid on to blend flavors. Serve.
