I made a double batch of this today and after a sampling for lunch on spaghetti I bagged the rest for the freezer. This is the time of year that I make soups and such for over wintering on the easy. I replaced the wine with beef broth out of personal preference but aside from that followed the recipe. Got 9 bags with enough for two servings (for us) each. The sauce is delicious and will be appreciated all winter long. :D
Thank you for uploading this wonderful recipe! We really enjoyed this meal and it was very simple to make. I started everything on the stove top and the transferred it to the crockpot to let it simmer for about 4 hours (because you said it is better the longer it cooks). I came home from an outting with friends and the house smelled like my home growing up. I served this over Whole Wheat Linguine with Garlic Bread and our whole family devoured it. I did take pictures, but am unable to upload them until my laptop is repaired. I will come back in a few days and post them. Thanks so much Deantini! Made for Rookie Recipe Tag *Fall 2013*.
