I already posted this back in 2009 but I thought it deserved a re-posting with some updated pics. This recipe is a staple in my family — guaranteed to make an appearance at each holiday, at the very least, and also among many regular ol’ Sundays throughout the year. It’s the kind of meal that takes several hours from start to finish, but it is one of my favorite types of meals to make. Take some humble ingredients — onion, garlic, canned tomatoes. Throw in some herbs, wine if you like, and your meat of choice (although in my opinion, lamb is necessary for the right flavor — sausage or meatballs optional), and a few hours later you’ve got a delicious gravy that begs to be swirled around pasta and mopped up with italian bread. Yes — eat this!
