This was quite nice, but probably a little bit too spicy for my taste. It was worth a try, but I am still in search of the 'perfect' meat sauce recipe to make my family staple. Thank you for a good recipe!

We loved the bit of spice in this-sort of Mexico meets Italy, and the amount of herbs was jut right too. It cooked up really rich and beautiful looking but I added a couple of slices of bacon to your recipe so didn't photograph it. Otherwise I didn't change a thing, (and wouldn't the next time I make it). Thanks for a different way to make a family favourite.
