Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 3-1/4 hours
So, I must have cooked this recipe three times already - great, just like Mom used to make! I would appreciate it if maybe the author could answer my concern here: So yesterday, I made this recipe once again. I went to the grocery store to buy some tomato sauce since I was out. I saw a can that had basil and oregano included in the tomato sauce . At the time I thought the basil and oregano wouldn't interfere with the bacon or carrots, so I went ahead and used this can anyway. After, I cooked the sauce I noticed I couldn't taste the bacon nor the carrots (which usually are stars of this recipe!). At this point, I'll see if their flavor comes out by sitting in the fridge for a few days, otherwise is there anything I can do? or is just a cooking lesson I have to learn from?...to use plain tomato sauce next time!...Lol! Thanks! ...Norbert
This is an excellent change of pace from regular spaghetti sauce. I cooked everything in an electric skillet, and then transferred the sauce to a slow cooker on low for the 3-4 hour simmer. My Sicilian husband gave it 5 stars!
