About this recipe: This sugo, Italian for "sauce", is just like my grandmum's, who came from Italy. Perfect for serving a crowd, or freeze leftovers to have on hand whenever you need a delicious homemade pasta sauce.
Took shortcuts. My whole family loved this sauce. Even the picky 5 year old who only eats his spaghetti with butter asked for some of this because it smelled so good, and ate every bite. I cooked mine in my slow cooker for 24 hours, which made it very easy. It freezes very well, and makes three meals worth of sauce for our family. - 15 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. With a couple of minor adjustments, this is excellent. With this quantity of garlic, I think slow cooking for much longer than 90 minutes is essential. Otherwise there is a lingering garlic harshness which mellows and becomes a great undertone after about three hours. I also would use far more onion......onions are full of sugar, and also add a nice chunkiness. I'd use four or five times the onion, sauteed until translucent. - 15 Sep 2008
Need just a little sugar added to the mix. Other than that it is a good sauce. Freezes well and tastes better the next day. - 15 Sep 2008
