Top shelf sauce without a doubt! This is a winner in my house and I am sure it is in many others.

Wow...wow and wow!!! I used to be intimidated by just the thought of making "real Italian" sauces with spareribs, etc. because my Italian girlfriend made hers so well (and nothing would come close to hers!!) But with this sauce, I have now graduated to the big leagues!! The reason this recipe did get 5 stars was because it turned out so well....but I did have to increase on the seasonigns quite a bit. I used about 1 lb of Italian sausages and 1 rack of spareribs. I simmered this meat sauce for over 6 hours. I used Margaret's Perfect Pasta With No Watching and No Sweating for the pasta. Once the pasta was cooked, I added a bit of butter and parmesan cheese to the pot and mixed some sauce into into the noodles. I then passed more sauce around seperately and had some parmesan sitting on the table. Served with a nice baguette, this meal got a huge sigh of satisfaction from my family and guests! I have company coming at the end of this month, so I will be making this recipe again to impress them! Karen, my many thanks to your Mama!!!

I cooked a batch of this sauce and the meat - a - balls for about 10 redhats. I have had requests for the recipes and have been told by an Italian that I am an honorary Italian now. What more can I say!

Simply DIVINE! This is my new go-to recipe for sauce. It takes a little bit of time and energy, but it is well worth it! Last time I didn't add any meat to the sauce itself and it was still delicious (although I plan to try it again and add meat this time, since it says not to skip a step!).

WOW! I didn't have any spareribs so I used two sweet Italian sausages and I have a habit of using more garlic than called for (4 cloves vs 2 ) but this sauce is great.

Very good. I used two spare ribs, pepperoni, italian sausage and ground pork for my meats. It was great! I also used the sauce to make pizza with.

This sauce is AMAZING! I made it a little while ago, and stuck the leftovers in the freezer. I needed to whip up a super fast dinner a few nights ago, and took this out, thawed it in the microwave...threw it on some cooked ziti noodles with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and baked it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes...it was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! This sauce is the BEST! :)
