Sunday Gravy for Pasta

Diana Perry


This is a take off from Rene Graziano's (Mofia Wives) gravy recipe. I've made a few changes and we're pretty satisfied with it now. Great with Italian sausages or meatballs made with beef, pork and veal. If you can't find, or don't want to use veal I substitute ground turkey. I'm going to post the meatball recipe also that goes so well with this.
