This is a great sauce for either pasta or lasagne. If you like you can run it through a food processor at the end so you get a thick meaty sauce without chunks.
This recipe is FABULOUS! I did make a few changes though. I substituted the veal and steak with ground turkey (less fat), I seasoned the meat and added chopped onion while browning and I added chopped mushrooms to the simmering sauce. Plus I was only patient enough to let it simmer for about 45 min. I used it as a lasagne sauce. The sauce was slightly runny when I assembled the lasagne, but thickened quite nicely in the oven. My husband said it was restaurant quality. I gave half the lasagne to my mom, and she asked for the recipe because she & her husband liked it so much! I will definitely make this again! - 20 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
If your looking for the ultimate Meat Sauce, this is it!!! Its AWESOME !!!! I did make a few changes to it I used Hot Italian sausgaes instead of sweet, 1/2 tsp of thyme a dash of salt and used ground beef instead of the steak. I also like vegetables in my sauce so I added some onions, celery and mushrooms. I added 1/5 a cup of red wine near the last 15 minutes of cooking as well. Next time I might add a little sugar. It was great, this one is a keeper. Thank you! - 03 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My husband and I thought this recipe was definitely restaurant quality. I substituted turkey italian sausage for the regular italian sausage to save on fat and I used ground sirloin and ground pork instead of cubed veal and steak. If you are looking for a fresh gourmet tasting sauce this is the sauce for you! - 21 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
