Ziti with the Meat Gravy

Saturday I sat down with my newly arrived special edition DVD of Goodfellas.

It was, of course, required the I make some long cooked pasta sauce to go along with it. I had a bunch of tomatoes from the garden, and got three kinds of meat from the store (pork, beef, and veal) and sliced the garlic thin (not using a razor blade as in the movie, but still quite thin). The sauce cooked down all day -- a total of about 6 hours of cooking time.

I thought I had Ziti in the house, but alas did not. So, instead I used Rigattoni, which is my favorite pasta shape.
