    MarraMamba's Note:

    A lovely savory pasta dish with ham. Use as a first course or main dish. Make the sauce in the morning to allow it to sit for 8 hours. It truly does need to blend the flavors. Prep time does not include 8 hours sitting time.

      This recipe is outstanding! Very much like the pasta sauce at a favorite restaurant, I use San Marzano tomatoes and find the sugar can be cut back or even eliminated.

      This was so easy to make and my husband raved about it. My in-laws loved it as well. It has a nice light red sauce, not like the ones you get in a jar. This is going to be my red sauce from now on! Thanks for sharing!
