This a terrific recipe with no added sugar because tomatoes contain sufficient sugar to make it naturally sweet. We'll put this on pasta not pancakes! It comes from the Sicilian Culture website. Try it and you will see. I also sub 1 lb cooked chicken (if using cooked chicken, cook sauce for complete time and add chicken just prior to serving), or 1 lb Italian hot sausage for the ground beef.

  4. Try not to burn the garlic, as it will become bitter.
  5. Combine the meat and fry the meat, breaking it apart until it is browned and cooked.

Yummy and delicious. This went great with our other entrée chicken parmesan. I knew I loved Sicilian food. Made for PAC Spring 2014.
