This makes a thick meaty sauce which is also excellent for lasagne. If you prefer a more pourable sauce you can add an extra cup of water and cook it down until you get the conistency you like. And I know, that's a lot of oil! But trust me, it makes the sauce taste delicious!

Tip 1: If you like a sweet sauce add an extra tbsp. of sugar or use maple flavor sausage.

Tip 2: This sauce is even better the next day so make it the day before, then simply warm it up.
