Wow, did this take me down memory lane. In my childhood, my family went to few restaurants, but there was an Italian one that we visited every now and then. I'm positive this was their pasta sauce. I love it, love it, love it. I did make a few changes, but nothing extreme. Used a whole small onion, no raisins (just didn't seem right), a heaped tablespoon of capers, fettucine and basil (my garden supply of parsley was gone). I will make this again, exactly the same way, and savour the meal as well as the memories. Thanks so very much for posting this unexpected bit of my food history.
