Add in the Italian parsley, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, broth, apple cider vinegar/wine, sugar and all of the spices with the bay leaf and the spinach.
  3. Stir the sauce well, mixing all ingredients into one mixture, and then bring the sauce to a brief boil. Then cover the pot with the lid and turn the heat to low. Allow sauce to simmer for 2-1/2- 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove the bay leaf and add more parsley, if desired.
