An Italian from Milan once told about making sauce starting with celery and carrot...this was new to me, and I didn't really "get it" until I came across this recipe. Also, the addition of both milk and white wine threw me, but the end result is complete with simple, earthy, flavor. This is my new favorite ground meats sauce, a definite crowd pleaser, and my finicky toddler loves it too. Also, no need to alter any directions/ingredients etc., in my opinion. Thank you for shaing Jen!
