I invented a pasta sauce at the age of 12, which I still make. It is based on tomato sauce, contains a plethora of spices, Italian sausage, onions, mushrooms, carrot and red wine. Once completely assembled, it cooks at a high simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Does this sauce fit into any category? It obviously is not a Bolognese. It is not a puttanesca or an arrabiata (no peppers), and I don't think it's a true marinara or pomodoro. Does it fit into any category you know of, or is it just a tasty mutt?
