Traditional Sunday Sauce The Next Generation Curt's Guest Post

Curt's Traditional Sunday Sauce "The Next Generation"

Traditional Sunday Sauce "The Next Generation", is my son's Curt's version! This has three kinds of meats, boneless fried spare ribs (shown),  Italian homemade Sausage and Italian Sunday morning meatballs inside this bubbling pot of wonderful sauce. Inspired by my mom Margaret Fanelli Colenzo and Grandma Victoria Ferraro Colenzo. He took both their methods and adapted it to his own.  A very thick, delicious sauce, with fresh pureed plum tomatoes, fresh herbs and lots of meat, slowly cooked for a minimun of two hours.

Freshly made sausage mom's recipe.
Nothing smells better or tastes like fresh tomatoes besides if they were home grown tomatoes!
This was all done in my new kitchen, I am so proud of him, he really made a fabulous sauce. We always wonder why you can follow any recipe, everyone's sauce tastes so different, no two tastes are alike following the same recipe! My contribution today was frying all the meats and making Homemade Artisan Bread, rising in the background!

Frying the tomato paste in extra virgin olive oil and fresh garlic gives the sauce added flavor.

I told him to write everything down before he forgets, he throws it all in there just like my mom did, his great grandma and of course he learned from me too ! I told him a pinch of this and a pinch of that, every one pinches a different amount!!... so you will have to decide! He just laughed!

4 lbs fresh Roma (plum) Tomatoes pureed, skins on, stems cut off
