makin the pasta sauce

A while back I said what a shame it was that we have lived up north for 4 years and havent tried all our friends authentic Italian recipes. I hate to one day move back south with nothing to show for it! Ha

So our friends Kristen & Dan offered to share his Nana D's Pasta Sauce Recipe with us. He came over early one morning and got to work. Then that night we had all our friends over for an authentic italian meal.
