Excellent sauce! You get a nice richness from the wine, without it specifically tasting like wine itself. I used very lean turkey in this and DH said after simmering for an almost an hour you could not tell it was turkey anymore! I left out the second butter and used a teaspoon of oil for sauteing to make this healthier. I also added bay leaves and Italian seasoning, and topped with a lot of fresh parsley. Mushrooms would be a great addition to this spaghetti sauce. I served this over a pound of pasta and it was still very saucy, feeding 4.
