“This is my Mom's sauce, the sauce I grew up with and loved...but now that I am grown I have made a few changes but posted the orginal recipe from my Mom. Basically for my grown up taste, I increased all the spices. I would like to say I doubled them, but I'm sure it is probably even more. I just cup my hand pour some spice in and throw it in the pot. And I also tend to let it simmer on the stove all morning. It's a good sauce and the one I started with before I started spicing it up. Occaisionally I added her meatballs to this recipe, they can be found here Mom's Meatballs

  1. Heat olive oil in sauce pot, and saute the onion and garlic.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except the grated cheese and bring to a boil.
  3. Cover, lower heat and simmer one hour.
  4. NOTE: For a thicker sauce, stir in the 1/4 cup grated cheese and simmer 5 minutes more. Actually -- I think it even tastes better.
