Sunday Sauce.

After a rather busy week last week, I was so happy to have a lazy Sunday on the books over the weekend. I caught up on blogs and my DVR, lounged around in my cozy new sweatshirt, and got a pot of bolognese cooking for the better part of the afternoon. Making a big pot of tomato sauce just reminds me of being at my Grandma’s house growing up — the smell of the garlic and onions filling up the whole house. I used a recipe from Williams-Sonoma as my guide, but made it my own with a few ingredient swaps.  It totally hit the spot and exceeded my expectations. It’s a recipe that I’ll be adding to my cookbook file for future reference, comfort food at its best!

    Nothing makes your house smell better than sauce simmers. It immediately feels like Sunday!

    Taz — I didn’t use the celery because my lovely husband thought it was a snack and ate it all 🙂 And I used bacon instead of pancetta — since I couldn’t find pancetta at the store!

    This is my secret weapon! I use it all the time, especially for lasagna! Always a crowd pleaser. I’ve even used it as a base for a vegetarian take 🙂
