    Very yummy recipe. My youngest ate 3 bowls. Also I used one can of tomato puree in place of one can of tomatoes to give it more of a sauce like appearance. I put the peas on the side as my picky eaters would snub this.  -  20 May 2013


    I was not crazy about this recipe at all. I am 100% Italian and I have never eaten Ragu with this kind of recipe. If you really want to make it I suggest finding a more authentic Ragu recipe  -  06 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
