Ingredients

1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground sausage or 2 Italian sausage links, casings removed
1/2 can (3 oz) tomato paste
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup red wine
1/2 cup beef broth
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 bay leaf
oregano, to taste
basil, to taste
parsley, to taste
salt (a tsp or so, to taste) and pepper


In a large saute pan, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant.


Add the sausage and ground beef, crumbling and browning. Drain.


Add the remaning ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.


Simmer covered (or uncovered, for a slightly thicker sauce) for an hour or longer.
