Great flavor. I have been instructed by the whole family to make this again and often. I doubled the sauce to have extra for the egg noodles I served on the side. I also served cauliflower. Would also be good with mashed white potatoes, rice, or something similar to soak up the yummy gravy. Veggie wise, I'd go with the cauliflower again or broccoli, carrots, green beans, snap beans, snow peas, english peas, asparagus...nothing with a sauce or gravy tho, simply steam and toss with oil or margarine if you this you need it. This was a great shabbat dinner which I will be making again. Thanks for posting!
