Hmmm wife is Italian it’s been a while.
How good are you at sauce ?
Would you make it a meat sauce ?
1lb ground pork beef veal mix or lamb
8 cloves Garlic chopped smashed fine
2-4 anchovies if you don’t like them skip it.
2 18 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
San Marzano are that much better
If sauce pan Brown the meat maybe in batches
You might need to drain it
Add garlic red chip pepper anchovies
Let that brown
Deglaze 1/2 cup wine or water
Pour in the tomatoes
Your gonna need to stir - let it simmer for maybe two hours
You can do less like 45 mins
This one is pretty good.
They have an ok sauce recipe too
Basically the egg egg yolks etc get whisked with the ricotta
