Okay, so I essentially made this sauce as written, with two exceptions - a bit of balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar (very good, but don't overdo it) and a lean Italian pork link made by a local market. Oh, and I grilled the meats, then brought them in and finished the sauce. I wanted to be fair in rating this, but didn't have red wine vinegar and we are on a grilling kick. :) The rating is based on this.
Ultimately, because I like to play, I added tomato paste, Garlic/Basil/Oregano seasoned diced tomatoes, beefed up the seasonings - onion and garlic powders, diced onion, minced garlic in addition to the sliced, and a dried tomato/basil/garlic seasoning (one of the Mrs. Dash combos, I think it is). Also added 1/4 c heavy whipping cream to a double recipe (would have been fine with Lite, but didn't have it). I left the meat and cream out of a portion and added some grilled zucchini for a vegan in the house. It was enjoyed by everyone present. A good, versatile recipe and much appreciated, Patricia. Thank you!
