This is a family recipe that has yet to disappoint. The original version called for both ground beef and sausage, so if you'd like this sauce extra chunky, you can add sausage style crumbles to the sauce as well. I haven't tried it yet, but know it would be delicious.



Note: This makes a lot! Freeze in sandwich bags and thaw as needed.

It seriously makes enough to feed more than 10 people though, maybe even up to 20. This is my favorite pasta sauce recipe ever and makes the house smell SOOO good

Sounds delicious One question though... I never knew that some brown sugar wasn't vegan. Is that true?

It's true. Check out this site. Some companies, like C&H, use animal bone char to filter the sugar. Gross, I know.



My fav vegan brown sugar is Florida Crystals. Trader Joe's has a good one too. It's actually quite easy to find, in my experience. I bought a bag of the FC brown sugar for $2.75, not much more than the C&H brand. I'm not a vegan, but prefer to eat that way as much as possible.



And I promise, it's very delicious! I've given this recipe away on here a few times, but don't think anyone has tried it. Wish someone would. I'm telling you, it's great and makes the house smell OOHHHH SOOOO good

No I knew that about bone char but I though that only applied to white refined sugar. The bone char is what makes it white. So I'm still curious about brown sugar.



ETA: Ok so I found this... http://www.vegsource.com/jo/qa/qasugar2.htm



I had no idea that brown sugar was just white sugar with mollasses. Still the sugar thing just irks me. I don't use honey cause I find that easliy avoidable. Refined sugar though.... that's tough.

Yep. Powdered sugar is sugar and cornstarch. I actually didn't know about brown or powdered until recently. I really didn't think about it before then



Agree, refined sugar is very hard to avoid. Very. I bought agave nectar, but haven't tried it yet (in place of honey). As long as I'm baking the foods myself, I know that the sugar is vegetarian. When you go out to eat, that's another story.
