A classic around our house…although if my son had his way there’d be giant meatballs in it every time I make it! I call it a “Big Pot of Love” because this dish is made in a big red pot that I LOVE! My daughter is continually trying to throw the pot into the cabinet with the other pots and pans and I have to remind her to leave it out because it’s part of the “decor”. It’s an ongoing battle because she is a minimalist at heart. 🙂
To the food:
Here’s that red pot with all kinds of yummy love inside.

And the final dish.
I know…you weren’t expecting Tabasco right? Yeah…me neither until I tried it. I cannot help but have it this way. Homemade chili sauce made with a mortar & pestle is way better, but Tabasco does a pretty good job of kicking it up some. I even use the little red juice to spice up my chicken flavored ramen noodles at times! So what if I like it HOT?! 🙂
And…wondering how to make your own homemade sauce? Here’s a simple recipe by the loveliest fast chef around Rachel Ray (with a little help from Elsa). I tweek mine quite a bit, but I always try to use the wonderful San Marzano tomatoes for best flavor. They are sold at your local market…so just look for this can. Go make some chow!
