“I do not know where this recipe came from. A friend gave it to me. This is THE BEST SAUCE I've ever had!! We use to like dining out at Italian places but not now. Not after eating this sauce. I don't think there is any sauce that will taste as good as this. My Husband eats this stuff by the spoonful. It is that good!! (I don't claim it is Italian, I just know my family loves it!) I am sad to see that this recipe isn't liked by all. My sister said it was too sweet as well. I guess you just have to have a sweet tooth to enjoy. I hope you try it a different way to satisfy your taste buds. If it is not Italian enough for you, then maybe try adding more Italian seasoning and leaving out the sweets and maybe trying Italian Sausage in addtion to or instead of the polish sausage. For the other person: if it is too sweet, next time, just don't add all the molasses and or brown sugar or take one of them out and add all of the other. Sorry you had to toss it. You could have frozen it and fixed it next month or 6 months from now. It freezes well!”
