    Rita~'s Note:

    This sauce can be divided into single servings, frozen for future use. When reheating go ahead and add some VODKA and cream for a great vodka meat sauce (here's the Polish part)! I made this with only 1 tablespoon Olive oil and lean meats trying to keep the fat down and didn't lose anything in taste! Delicious in a meat lasagne or a baked ziti dish. Top a pizza or go a whole different way and place in a pie dish and top with mashed potatoes for a Italian shepherds pie! Now that's South meets East meets Western Europe! ;) Enjoy!

      This is really a great bolognese sauce, I did make a few changes though, I used all ground beef and omitted the celery, I used 3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic and 1 tablespoon dryed chili flaked and added in one jalapeno pepper. I am serving this sauce within the next couple of days so I will refrigerate until serving to blend the flavors even more, thanks for sharing this great recipe Rita!...Kitten:)
