From an Italian restaurant in R.I., we made a few changes. Oh so good.

This sauce is wonderful; so tasty. I made for dinner and had enough to freeze for another dinner. I did not add the second can of tomatoes only because I started the sauce in a smaller pot and would not fit. So, the one I froze was a little dry, so just added a little jarred marinara. Thank you for posting. Awesome sauce, will keep making again and again.
