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.
