    Nicole Gray's Note:

    This is my grandmother's recipe from Italy. It is wonderful. I have gotten rid of all other sauce recipes because this one is so good. It is also wonderful over rice and by itself. I love it because it tastes too good and is very filling so it lasts more than 2 meals.

      Very good pasta sauce! I cooked it on low all day in my crock pot after browning the ground beef in a skillet. Great comfort food, that I served with Italian whole wheat bread. In addition I added sliced white button mushrooms.
