New This Month

This kid's classic and favorite leaves time for the family to enjoy summer evenings together. The recipe for the flavorful meat sauce can easily be doubled. Feel free to make a big batch of it over the weekend, then freeze it in smaller portions for busy weeknights.

    This is an excellent recipe! I allowed the extra time needed for the sauce to thicken. The vegetables were nondetectable to the eye, they just melted, disappearing into the sauce. Amazing flavor. Thanks Emeril.

    I used less liquids as the other users suggested. I also simmered it for more like 20 minutes. Turned out great! And so delicious!

    I too found it had too much liquid. I reduced the broth to 1/2 a cup and had to cook it longer. I also reduced the brown sugar. Otherwise it was great! This froze well too.
