Yummy!! My boyfriend and I made this together, drank wine, put on music and we're new to cooking but OH MY GOD YUM I come from a big Italian family where everyone has their own way of making sauce.This will now be mine 2 thumbs up or more...this sauce was awesome I wish I could post a picture of him sneaking in the kitchen every five minutes to taste it again
This is one of the best meat sauces I have ever tasted. This sauce has a wonderful flavor and none of the bitterness that is so common in many sauces. I served this to my family tonight and they loved it.... I highly recommend this recipe!
This recipe was a hit! (with me, and the people who ate it) I halved everything and added just a tad bit more oregano, parsley and romano cheese. It was my first time ever making any kind of sauce and it was fun and worked well.
It's surprising that this recipe hasn't gotten more action here. I see that about a thousand people have saved it, but there are only 8 reviews. This is really an excellent recipe. If you disagree, it means you haven't yet made it, or you accidentally blended in paint thinner. I like to replace most of the meats with turkey versions, which i've convinced myself is completely healthy. It's still some of the best pasta sauce i've ever had. Be careful with the servings listed. I found that the "12" it lists would have to be pretty generous portions. In any case, if you're looking for a meaty red sauce, there is none better than this one. Make it once as is, and then experiment - you're certain to fall upon something that your family, or friends, or random people you drag in off the street will walk away from the table with a smile - most likely discovering that they ate WAY more than they had planned.
Wow, this was so good. Lots of flavour and meat.
Fantastic recipe, turned out great. I did make some minor adjustments. I did the sausage and pork, but went with ground beef instead of meatballs for convenience sake. I only had 2 cans of diced tomatoes, so I went with 2 cans of each of the diced and tomato sauce and just four cans of tomato paste. With roughly 1.5 hours remaining, I added a big can of tomato puree to make up for the missing cans. I stayed with the recipe on spices, except I added a tablespoon of sugar and a 3 tablespoons of garlic/onion spice mix. I also added pepperoni, 2 green peppers, and mushrooms (and extra minced garlic), none of which were called for in the recipe. Other minor changes: I chopped the onion in to bigger slices instead of small. I used shredded parmesan as a substitute for romano, which I did not have on hand. All in all, the changes worked out well. I thought it tasted great, and my girlfriend loved it.
If I had five thumbs, that's what I would give. Changed nothing and it came out great.
