Authentic Pasta Sauce
150 mins (prep 30, cooking 120)
13 ingredients
8 servings
This is the best sauce you'll ever taste. The recipe was given to me by my sister who found it in an old cookbook. I've typed it as it appears in the book, but I also add meatballs, pepperoni (cut in 2" chunks) and sweet and hot Italian sausages. My Grandmother use to add chicken, rabbit, pork chops and/or steak to her sauce (a recipe I wish I had). All of which can be served on the side and make a wonderful addition to the meal. Please note that the serving size is for 1 pound of pasta, however, you may prefer to use less or more. In ( ) at the end of each ingredient are the proportions I use when I make this recipe. Freezes well.
