    Jezebella Rains's Note:

    A great, spruced up, version of the old classic. This sauce can be made with what ever type of Riesling wine you prefer. Also you can substitute ground pork, veal, chicken, turkey or any combination of ground meat for the beef.

      The list of ingredients is a bit daunting but well-worth the effort! I incorporated these into my "regular" spaghetti recipe, and found the wine a GREAT addition to the same-old, same-old! Now why didn't I think of that before? :-) Instead of meatballs I crumbled the burger for frying instead, but added CRUSHED fennel to the sauce---what a GREAT flavor and SMELL. *Made for PAC Spring 08*
