The sauce for our version of this rustic Italian classic includes ground pork. If you'd like to skip the pork; just use an additional pound of ground beef.

    Are you supposed to drain the fat off the meat after cooking? I followed all of the directions, times, etc. but my sauce came out liquidy.

    My family loves this dish and are happy to eat it a couple of times a month. It also freezes well. We have a couple of twists on it...instead of pork sausage we use a bulk mild italian sausage. And at the end, right before serving I add a zest of one orange it brightens up and updates the recipe. If I double the recipe I reserve some for freezing before adding the orange zest.

    Great recipe! I used less onions and carrots than suggested and used red wine instead of white - it turned out delicious! My friends loved it too.

    Your local wine/liquor store will have it. A lot of times, on the back label, it will say that the wine is dry, or there may be a number between 0 and 5. 0 is very dry, 5 is very sweet - you'd want nothing more than a 2.
