Sunday Sauce alla Scorsese

Catherine Scorsese makes Sunday Sauce Italian Gravy in her apartment

on Elizabeth Street, Little Italy, New York …

“This is what my mother in-law taught me. You take a few tablespoons of tomato sauce, and put in here (with the chopped meat).”

“It keeps the meatballs soft. Not like some people. You get invited to some peoples house, and the Meatballs are hard. I better be careful. I have a lot of friends. If they see this.”

  1. Reblogged this on BRUT IMPERIAL ANTARCTICA and commented:
    I was looking for the baked cheese in this script. I thought that’s what it meant, but I don’t have the time right now to look at the videos. I just thought the script from their home movie was funny. I thought it was a real movie, I was wondering what it was? You know, a funny mob movie but that was sad because what was funny about it was that no one was funny except in themselves. Oh well, that’s what it’s not.

    So I thought I would reblog this for whoever has more time. I need to find an Italian baked cheese recipe now. I will.
