I had time to cook today and wanted a richer sauce then I usually make. I made this up and asked Tara what she thought. she loved it.
Its easy but it takes a while to cook
2 lbs smoked pork neck bones
28 oz can diced tomatoes
14 oz can diced tomatoes
6oz can Tomato paste
1 cup red wine (I used Merlot)
1 large yellow onion diced small
8 oz sliced mushrooms
5 large cloves garlic minced or pressed
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
heat olive oil in a large fry pan until hot.
add the onions,mushrooms and pork bones.
cook over medium high heat 8 minutes or so turning the bones occasionally until the bones are nicely browned and the onions have started to brown
add the tomatoes remaining ingredients
Bring to a boil and lower heat to a simmer.
simmer for 2 hours with the lid off stirring occasionally
put cover on pan and simmer 1 1/2 hours more
If the sauce seems to be as thick as you want you can put the lid on earlier.
Remove the neck bones before spooning over spaghetti
Makes 6-8 servings
