"Manly" Tomato Sauce

My new favorite cookbook is The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion & Cooking Manual.  The recipes are wonderful and the book is dedicated to their grandmothers --you know it has to be good when you read that dedication!  I am not sure if I am allowed to print the recipe for this sauce.  I did modify it a little bit but still --check out the cookbook.  Their (the two Frankies) cookbook is beautiful and a nice small size, a perfect addition to your cookbook library.  I describe this sauce as "manly" because it is!  The recipe calls for 13 cloves of garlic.  I had some very large cloves of garlic so I used half that and it was still very "manly".  My family really loved it and Fitzy's boys said it was "just like Nonna's"!  :)  I hope you try it.
