    susie cooks's Note:

    I have been making this for over 25 years. It is our special tomato sauce. The aroma of this sauce while it is cooking is wonderful. Sometimes I add some red wine while it is simmering. I really don't know how much this recipe yields but I am guessing 2 1/2 to 3 quarts. I know that I get 2 meals from this sauce. It freezes well. When I make this my family knows they are in for a great dinner!

    1. 1
      Brown bacon. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon (save this for another use, like a salad topping).
    2. 2
      Saute onions and garlic in bacon fat until soft. Add ground beef and brown.
    3. 3
      Crush whole tomatoes, with juice, with your hands. Add to the pot.
    4. 4
      Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil.
    5. 5
      Lower the heat and simmer for at least one hour. I cover the sauce partially with a lid and simmer 2-3 hours. Check to see if you need to add more water (or wine).
