      My mother made her sauce on the weekend no recipe and this one is very very close. So I am rating this to put in my files and I will def try as per your ingredients. My mother first browned her ribs, then added chopped celery. She wanted to just add a can of tomato paste with enough water to cover but we were out so she used ready made canned spaghetti sauce - one with basil & romano and the other was a spicy sauce. I had some leftover cooked ribs off the bone that we also added and it was the best sauce ever. Served over whole wheat spaghetti and a couple of cooked spaghetti squash. Absolutely delish!!
