    Mole's Note:

    Make italian sauce like a 5 star restaurant. Sure to be a crowd pleaser. This sauce was posted in our local paper by an Italian chef, whose mother made this sauce for their lasagna recipe (I'll post the lasagna recipe later if it's any good).

      This recipe is the bomb. It is the only way I make Bolognese, and it is killer in lasagne, but the recipe belongs to Emeril Lagasse, for his lasagne dish. That Italian chef who published it should know that is illegal to publish someone else's recipe in your own name.
