"Grain alcohol, not vodka... vodka has a flavor you don't want to add to this.
6 lemons is enough...
40 days, not 4 days... patience!
Disappointed reading this, sorry...
"Fabulous recipe! Really! Next time I'll try it with a "meatloaf mix" instead of all ground beef to see if that..."
"This sauce was amazing! I bought 2 rotisserie chicken thighs from the deli for this, and 2 raw spare ribs from..."

"Maybe it was my fault, but I don't think so. The 5-star recipe, to me, is too loose and not seasoned enough.
Used 1.40 lb meatball mix + .5 lb 90% ground beef
Added 1/4 cup minced onion
Added 1 tbsp minced garlic (not enough)
Added 1/4 tsp chopped crushed red pepper (not enough)
(I doubled the recipe, which you will NEED to do for pasta)
Used two cans San Marzano skinless tomatoes
Added 2 sweet sausage patties (had them in freezer; too much I think)
Added 1 tbsp chopped basil (3 frozen packaged cubes; not enough)
Added 1 tbsp dried oregano (or tsp, forgot to write it down)
Everything else was to the tee. I did use the immersion blender since I hate chunky tomato sauce, so maybe that contributed to it.
The meatballs were good, but not great. I hate over-seasoned food, but this probably could've used more than the recipe called for. The sauce tasted too much like sausage, so I guess I used too much -- didn't put beef in the sauce, so no surprise.
