    Chef #631739's Note:

    My family and friends all love this incredibly easy recipe. It produces a thick, hearty sauce with a ton of flavor. Additional meat can be added (I add meatballs and a combination of sweet and spicy sausage as my budget affords). Enjoy! Note: The longer you allow the sauce to simmer, the better the flavor. If I'm home, I usually let the sauce simmer for the better part of the day on the stove or cook it overnight in a crock pot.

    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients in large stock pot (or crock pot if cooking overnight).
    2. 2
      Allow sauce to simmer on low heat until all vegetables are soft and meats are cooked through.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle top with pepper (I use about 3/4 tbsp).
    4. 4
      After a few hours, taste the sauce. If it is a little acidic, add the sugar and continue to simmer.
    5. 5
      Serve with favorite pasta and Parmesan cheese.
