This is the sauce I've made for years. We don't like loose hamburger, but instead like meatballs and Italian Sausage.

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

2 Hr

Ingredients

1 lb
hamburger
3 heaping Tbsp
parmesan or romano grated cheese
1/4 c
breadcrumbs; 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper
2
eggs
1 Tbsp
parsley and 1 minced clove of garlic
cooking oil to cover bottom of skillet
1 lb
italian sausage, cut into pieces desired and 3 whole cloves of garlic

SAUCE:

2 large can(s)
whole tomatoes
2 8-oz can(s)
tomato paste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all meatball ingredients, moisten with small handful of water and then roll into medium sized balls and fry until almost done. Remove from pan.
2
Fry sausage pieces and garlic cloves until nicely browned. Remove from pan.
3
Cook tomato paste in the pan used for browning meats for a couple of minutes.
4
Empty tomatoes into a saucepan (I like a smooth sauce, so I blend them in a blender first). Otherwise, break up tomatoes with a spoon. Bring to a soft boil, turn down to a simmer and add the tomato paste to the simmering tomatoes.
5
Add the sausages, garlic cloves, meatballs and season all with a couple pinches of basil leaves and salt and pepper to taste.
6
Simmer for 2 hours partially covered and stir once in awhile.
7
Be careful when stirring not to break up the meatballs.
