"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

I simmer sauce and add more garlic or Italian seasoning if needed according to taste Add about 1/2 c of sugar and 1/2-1 c. of red wine.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Hints: I actually make this recipe with 10 lbs of beef and use a large industrial can of crushed tomatoes and 1 large industrial can of tomato sauce. I add enough tomatoes paste to thicken it up generally 4-6 cans and enough meat to make it very hearty. I use about 3 onions and about 1/4 cup of garlic and approximately 3/4 c. of Italian seasoning with a cup of sugar and wine. I then freeze the strong sauce in 4-6 cups increments. During preparation, I put the frozen sauce in a crock pot, add a can or two of diced tomatoes and let it cook on warm most of the day until serving.

I use this sauce in lasagna, spaghetti, manicotti, and for serving with cheese sticks
