Wow. This Ragu is AMAZING. Thank you Emeril! I made it with homemade fettuccini last week and am making it today to incorporate into some lasagne for a dinner party. DE-LISH!

This was really good. Even my dh, who doesn't really like pasta enjoyed this. I used turkey sausage and left out the dry red wine and also the tomato paste. Turned out just fine without. Will definetly have again.

A winner from Emeril for sure! I used turkey sausage to cut back on the fat for me and since there was no fat to drain, decided to just throw it all in a crock pot. It cooked on low for about 7 hours and the house smelled wonderful! It was pretty spicy for me so I mixed one more 8 oz can of tomato sauce to tone it down. I also increased the sugar from a pinch to about 1 teaspoon. I served it on ziti pasta.
