I made the sauce tonight minus the meat and quadrupling the ingredients for a full 8 qt stock pot of sauce. It sounded so good and I've been wanting to try making my own sauce. I left the meat out so I can use the sauce for just about anything. I'll brown meat and stir in the sauce depending on the dish. The sauce is amazing!!!! I simmered it for 3 hours and now I'm letting it cool. I am going to bag it up in freezer bags and freeze it so I'll have some on hand on short notice. I did cut the amount of salt to 1/3 based on some previous reviews. The sauce is so fantastic I just can't wait to try it after it's had some time to age as it cools! I already have plans for the lasagna part of the recipe, stuffed shells, spaghetti, ziti, maybe even homemade pizza or calzones. I'm going to really enjoy trying this sauce in all kinds of Italian dishes. It is so beautiful to look at and tastes so much better than anything premade from a jar. Thanks, John for this wonderful recipe!!!
