    *MessyPessy*'s Note:

    Looking to use up some stuff in my freezer, I came up with this recipe with things I had on hand. It is really tasty and made a great lasagna! There aren't many ingredients, so it's simple to make. You will need a larger pot for this.

      A really tasty meat sauce that I ended up serving over spaghetti (with your fantastic garlic bread, as well). This sauce lends itself to so many uses and makes a lot, so you can freeze any leftovers. I made this exactly as posted for the most part. I used the crushed and pureed tomatoes. However, I must have misread the instructions because i added the beef stock and the wine together, even though step #7 doesn't mention the stock. I saw later it was simply there to thin the sauce, if necessary. Well, I did end up adding more stock later on because the sauce did become a little too thick. The white zinfandel was a new twist for me. I never thought of using any blush wine in tomato sauce, but it was nice. This is also the first time that I've made sauce without garlic! I cooked this for the full 3 hours and ended up with a delicious meat sauce. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2013.

      WOW! Really delicious meat sauce. I used my favorite garlic sausage! I however didn't use the sauce for lasagna and instead used it to stuff peppers. Everyone loved them! Made for Spring 2012 PAC.
