Personal Notes:
There is nothing like the smell of a big pot of sauce cooking all day.....and nothing like always having a container-or-two of sauce in the freezer. This recipe was handed down by my Italian Nonna. To keep the sauce from sticking, you can put a slab of spareribs on the bottom of the pan and as the sauce cooks, the meat will fall of the bones!
