About this recipe: An incredibly delicious sauce, which is perfect over pasta or in a hearty bread roll. Sausages and beef meatballs are simmered in a rich tomato sauce.
Pork neck bones can be purchased at your local butchers. You may need to make a special order for them.
Tomato juice or water can substituted for wine, if desired.
I am not a very good cook (I admit it) and tried this recipe. While it was slightly time consuming (browning the meats) this is by far the best sauce I have ever had (and I grew up in an Italian family!). It is worth the work and everyone that tastes this sauce absolutely loves it. I put in more garlic because I am a garlic lover and used pork chops (because I don't even know what Pork Neck Bones are and couldn't find them!). The meat added the most incredible flavor to the sauce and the pork literally fell off of the bone because it cooked so nicely in the sauce. I highly reccomend this recipe and it is the only recipe for sauce that I use now. - 06 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
YUM! I whirled the tomatoes (Italian style) through the blender, but only because my clan doesn't like chunks, and I added some shredded Italian blend cheese, about 1/4 cup, to the meatballs. Oh yeah, I forgot to add the wine, but I did add pinches of oregano & basil here & there. This turned out delicious. Hubby AND son told me that it was really good (and hubby is not fond of change..especially when it comes to his favorite, which is spaghetti sauce). A keeper in my book, thanks Flocco!! Next time I'll add the wine. - 09 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was looking for a new pasta sauce recipe and this one caught my eye because of all the meat in it. My kids, who are picky eaters, loved the sauce and the meatballs! This one's a keeper for me! - 18 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
