  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 lb. ground sausage or 2-3 hot 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
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • oregano, to taste
  • basil, to taste
  • parsley, to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 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.
  • (After you have combined all the ingredients, you can use your crockpot to finish the sauce. I left it on low about 4 or 5 hours and it's delicious!)
