re: Red Gravy and Meatballs-Pics

I used sugar in it. Recipe calls for it. I thought about anchovy paste as well. Might add some to a little this evening and simmer it a bit. Otis suggested that a long time ago and the mental note I made to do that didn't surface.

re: Red Gravy and Meatballs-Pics
It has sugar, which I would replace with a cup or so of wine. Needs a solid pinch of red pepper flakes, and I 'd add a little more herbs. Anchovies are a must for robust flavor.

Cut the sugar. A little wine is better. Damn, Lester.You know how to cook down a sauce.

I didn't want wine in this dish. Most red gravies don't have wine. It was omitted intentionally.

It does not. I achieved the flavor I wanted. I've made this before.

quote:

add a little more herbs


It has a lot of basil and parsley. The ommission of other herbs is intentional, as well. This is a certain type of red gravy. It's not meant to be an herby peppery wino spaghetti sauce. I make other types of red sauces with more seasonings and wine.

I don't think anchovies are a must, but I will try it in a sample portion because I like that flavor. I don't want it in the entire dish, though.

You can make yours your way, though, and I won't give you a list of what you should do to make it taste good to me.

Yeah and I didn't even ask for suggestions. Next time, I will add a disclaimer that suggestions are not welcome and such posts will be RA'd.

That's how I took it. I also like to hear alternative ideas to dishes.

Anchovies

No changes to this one needed. I want the very recipe of my friends' parents' version. It's different from this one, but doesn't have any of your suggested changes. That part I know. They don't seem to recall all of it, unfortunately. They make a decent one, but even they can't quite get it right.

I make several different versions or my own. This one is a milder but more authentic tasting version.

I also have a very dry wit. Some people don't get it.
