Spaghetti with Red Wine Sauce

My mom loves pasta dishes, so for her birthday dinner I wanted to whip up a pasta dish good enough that she wouldn't miss regular noodles.

    Thank you so much for this. Happy Birthday to your mom. I myself am a 48 year old kickboxer who has been eating Paleo for almost a year. I enjoy pasta night but was just saying I was tired of spaghetti squash. I make my mothers sauce (who knew it was paleo when i was a kid) but I am absolutely making this. Thank you for everything you do.

    I made this for dinner this week for me and my boyfriend (who is NOT paleo). I believe this is the most fantastic red sauce I have ever made! I did substitute ground turkey for beef, but otherwise kept the recipe the same. And the boyfriend loved it even with the zoodles.
