Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I add pork bones to my sauce, as well (from a little italian lady I once knew) and add some red wine to the sauce . . . also add a little oregano and basil and garnish with parsley . . .

I lived next door to an older lady who was from Italy and she told me to always put pork "BONES" in my sauce. Just the bones, no meat. She said this is what they did in Italy! The best sauce I have ever made or had. So just add some pork bones to this sauce and let it simmer. It will be delicous.

if broth is required, I'd try vegetable broth instead

Hi everyone I'm going to try this recipe and I'll let you know it goes. Very good point janywill1. I'll try it first before I add chicken broth and pour slowly a little at a time and see what taste. Good sounding recipe and good advice janywill1

I think using chicken broth ruins this good recipe. I make my own sauce always and never use chicken broth in it. Why does everything call for it anymore?

Very good advice.
