A very hearty meat sauce.

This was excellent! I was craving this sauce for days and it was exactly like I remember. I skimped on the time I took to simmer it and it was still excellent.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place meat, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic in pan over medium heat, and cook until meat is no longer raw, but don't brown it.
  2. Drain off fat, and add milk.
  3. Boil until liquid is gone, about ten minutes.
  4. Add wine, boil until liquid is gone, about ten minutes more.
  5. Add broth and tomatoes, turn heat to low, cover, and simmer about three hours, stirring occasionally until meat has broken down and sauce appears very thick.
  6. Add 2 TBS milk, and serve.
  7. It's going to look like there's not enough sauce there; there is--it's very rich.
  8. Best over rotini!
