  • Tomato Meat Sauce

    This is based on our family red sauce (recipe: https://mangiavita.com/articles/red-sauce/), but is a slight variation with only the pork meat which gets ground into the sauce at the end. Put oil in the bottom of a large sauce pot, in the oil slowly and carefully (as to not burn or darken anything too much) brown…
