Spaghetti Sauce

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce




  1. Heat a little olive oil in large pot, and add ground beef and sausage (casings removed). Break apart and add onions, bell pepper and garlic, 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Continue to cook until beef is browned and cooked.
  2. Add prepared jar of spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, mushrooms, wine, oregano, basil, bay leaves, and fennel. If you have a rind from parmesan cheese, toss that in as well. Cover (leave lid ajar a bit) and simmer for a couple hours, stirring occasionally and tasting to adjust seasonings as needed. About halfway through cooking, add grated parmesan cheese. Remove bay leaves before serving.
  3. Note: If your sauce tastes a little bitter from the tomatoes, add a little sugar to taste.
