    My Irish Grandmothers Italian Sauce

    Update: I made this for dinner last night, and as I suspected, this was a big hit with She Who Must Be Obeyed. I did have to interpret a bit, though. I decided I wanted a meat sauce, so after browning, I pulled one sausage out and chopped it fine while the onions and garlic were sauteing, then added it back when the tomato puree went in. I used two 28 oz. cans of puree, so I doubled the onion and garlic, as you suggested. I wound up with 8 cups of sauce, which we know from experience is enough for four dinners for the two of us. So, two cups and two sausages for dinner with vermicelli, and three containers in the freezer for future goodness. Very nice! I will be making this one again, but next time I will use two packages of sausage for a double recipe, and the extra sausages can go in ...see more »Update: I made this for dinner last night, and as I suspected, this was a big hit with She Who Must Be Obeyed.

    I haven't tried this yet, but it looks delicious! I plan to make it for dinner tomorrow.A quick question: Your recipe is a little light on quantities, especially regarding the tomato. I see that you added at one 28 oz. can of tomato puree, but I also see an empty can in the sink that may be the same. So, one can or two?

    Thanks. That's just the sort of info I needed before exploring on my own. Miss Sally is excited about tomorrow night, partly because of the new recipe, and partly because she doesn't have to cook!
