I used to wake up Sunday mornings to the smell of garlic, onions and this wonderful sauce. My father did a lot of the cooking and this in one recipe that will always bring back memories for me. He got so tired of feeding all of our friends that we would ask over to enjoy this dish, that he said that we couldn't invite anyone else unless it was "pretty serious" we were ready to announce our engagement. You can imagine the looks around the dinner table when my sister Debbie first brought her boyfriend, now her husband, over for "Sunday Dinner."
This dish is such a staple in our family, that you would see some families at our annual family picnic, heating a pan of pasta with sauce on their grills or Hibachi's - instead of hot dogs or hamburgers.
Use this sauce for Eggplant Parmigiana, lasagna or and other dish that requires spaghetti sauce. Put browned meatballs or Italian sausage in to the sauce the last 3 hours of cooking. Put an uncooked chuck roast into it for the last 3 to 4 hours, shred and return to pot for a shredded beef sauce. Add browned ground beef the last 30 minutes for a beef sauce.
