Sunday Sauce (#2719H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

The secret to Sunday Sauce is the sauce, of course, and Mary Ann starts hers off with garden-fresh plum tomatoes, planted, weeded, and harvested from Guy's garden. While the sauce simmers, she makes her grandmother's fork-tender braciole, then adds sausage and meatballs. The only thing left is time for friends to visit while the sauce cooks to perfection. Add pasta for the first course, and dinner is served!
