I get a kick out of how my "Irish" family prides themselves on their "Italian" cooking and I believe this sauce had them all WOW'd. Thanks for such a great recipe! Can't wait to try the meatballs.
The best ever!
Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect! The whole family LOVED it, including my Sicilian mother-in-law who had two helpings both times I've made it. Definitely make Mama's Meat A Balls (#32618) as well...yum!!!
Delicious--I cut the recipe in half and made lots of substitutions--hamburger for sausage, bacon and chicken sausage for the other meats. Also added some red wine. I love recipes that you can play with. PS: even a half recipe is a tremendous amount of sauce. I froze half of it.
This was the best, delicious really enjoyed this sauce
Perfect as written! Karen has another recipe from her mom for meatballs that pair very well with this sauce! As usual, I double this and freeze half!
great recipe! made it for a big group (lots of different taste buds...) and everyone loved it. what wasn't eaten for dinner was devoured for lunch the next day. I made it in combination with Kittencal's Italian Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meatballs. everyone that walked into the house loved the smell while dinner was being prepared
This is one of the best recipes for Spaghetti Sauce. I followed it "step by step" but did add hot italian sausage for that little extra spice. It's well worth the extra effort.
Hm, I thought this sauce was OK, but that's it. I used a package of ground turkey and a package of turkey hot italian sausage, plus added belle peppers to the onion mix. Deglazed w/ a shiraz-granache wine (it was already open), and simmered 2-3 hours. I really enjoy my "add my own veggies to a jar of store bought sauce" sauce better!
This is an INCREDIBLE recipe. Look no further. This is very similar to the way an old family friend from Italy made her sauce- except the ribs were not optional :-) . It is worth the time to make it, and I suggest you start with a double recipe and freeze half. You will DEFINITELY make it again. Very easy to modify according to what's in the cabinet and your own personal preferences.
