ginny's notes for this recipe:
This "gravy" has never failed! It's especially loved by onion haters as it contains NONE! You will see 2-3 different ingredients.

Directions

1
Crush the whole tomatoes by hand in a large bowl.
2
Heat enough olive oil in the bottom of a heavy dutch oven to lightly coat the bottom. Once the oil is hot add garlic and fry for about 45 seconds - not until brown. .
3
Add pre-crushed tomatoes and then the hand-crushed tomatoes, let them "fry" for 2-3 minutes.
4
Add pork bone, and all spices; stir well and add the cheese and wine. Bring all ingredients to a strong simmer, cover and cook on VERY LOW heat for 4-5 hours. Stir occasionally
5
If adding meatballs, sausage, bracioli, let gravy cook at least 2 hours before adding.
