Ok, friends. Here it is: simple, yet soul-satisfying like nothing else. I like to make a lot (11 or 12 quarts) of this sauce at one time, give some away and freeze a few quarts, you know, for sauce emergencies. If you have less of an appetite for the Life Force than we do (remember, my stepson prefers to drink his red sauce right from the bowl/pitcher/thermos, and no time of day or night is a bad time for red sauce), just reduce the quantities in proportion. The flavor will be the same. There will be many more variations of this recipe to follow, so stay tuned, and keep your questions and comments coming!
