My boyfriend's Mom makes an AMAZING meat/tomato pasta sauce. It's so good, her grandson's ask for it by name - Nana's Special Sauce! Even when the boys were going through their pickiest of eating stages, they all wanted Nana's Special Sauce.
We made it this weekend for the first time - and by following Nana's instructions below - it was a no-fail! It's delicious, savory and just a little bit spicy! We will be enjoying it tonight on brown rice noodles!
