Ingredients

tomato paste, italian (canned)
basil, oregano, parsley
parmesan cheese
olive oil, extra virgin, worstershire sauce
wine
sugar
pork ribs
italian sweet or hot sausage
beef or veal

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour tomatoes in a pot. Add paste (one can paste per one can of crushed tomatoes). Add a pour of olive oil, short pour of worstershire sauce. Bring to a boil, but watch it so it doesn't stick. Then turn down to simmer.
2
Briefly saute' onions, garlic, red bell peppers and mushrooms in olive oil just to get the flavors going. Add to pot.
3
Put all the meat in a large pan and stick under the broiler till browned on all sides (you could add meatballs in here too if they are made small enough). You could also add a little garlic powder over the meat and toss to coat.
4
While the meat is under the broiler, add palms of basil, oregano, parsley and parm cheese to the pot. Stir well. Stir in a pour of wine and sprinkle the sugar over the top of the gravy and stir in. Salt and pepper to taste.
5
Once browned, add meat to pot. Stir and simmer for about 3-4 hours. If it gets too thick, add a little water. Make sure you stir frequently so the gravy doesn't stick to the pot.
6
Serve with Rigatoni, or by itself with bread and salad. Enjoy. Refrigerate any leftovers.
