2 (14 ounce) cans

This sauce has become a favorite for my family! I like to cook the onion,celery,garlic & peppers down in olive oil, & then blend them in the food processer to lessen the chunks. We like it meaty & add hot italian sausages for more flavor. This recipe always gets positive reviews from guests.
Thought I'd try a new bolognese sauce and this just doesn't compare to my recipe. I give it 3* for ease, but to add a *wow* flavor, try this. After saute veggies, mix in veal/beef/pork (1/2 pound each). Add wine & stir until almost evaporated. You need the wine because red wine releases the last bit of sweetness in the tomato. Then add 1/2C whole milk & stir until evaporated. Next, tomato, etc. and simmer away. If you have a parmesan rind, toss this in when simmering. Always better the next day, but also great in lasagna.
this is a good recipe, but needs to be made a day or two ahead of time to allow the flavors to reach their peak.
My God ... it happens to be the nicest tasting spagetti bol I have ever cooked.
Made this on a whim, and my husband raved about it (and he's hard to please). He said it tasted just italian chili....which I had never heard of, but he's Italian, so he should know. He even took it to work to let a guy (who is a great cook) try it, and he raved about it also. Didn't change a thing, except a little less onion as I didn't have enough on hand.
This was a great thick sauce. It was very simple to make and had a great meat flavor. If you are looking for a thick meat sauce then you will love this recipe.
I gave this recipes to my husband to make for dinner last night. The main reason wanted him to try it was because of others saying their picky husbands even liked it. He made it and said it was easy, and he said he loved it!!! He also told me to rate it 5 stars and say that yes even picky husbands love it! I printed the recipe for 4 people but next time I will have him made the full recipe and freeze half.
Very, very good. Nothing like what you would get out of a jar. This is a very meaty dish. Once my pasta was cooked "Al Dante", I drained it and put it back in the pot over high heat. I tossed it with 1/2 cup of the sauce to coat it and tore some fresh basil leaves into it. I then cooked it for about 30 seconds to get it nice and coated. The over-all effect was great.
