My Friend’s Mom’s Sauce: Recipe #37
The best red sauce of its kind I've ever made.
This is my version of the Cataldo family’s famous “Mom’s Sauce.”
I tried it when I was shooting an episode of Family Dinner. Generations of Cataldos have grown up in their family pork store in Massapequa, NY. And every Monday, the family gathers to catch up, let the kids play together and enjoy a traditional family dinner.
While there were lots of memorable moments, this sauce is the one I keep coming back to (and it’s the one I’m constantly getting asked about!). I was taught to make it because they were loving and so kind to share and cook with me. I was BLOWN away … and now this version of their version is my family’s sauce of choice.
