1first of all lets roll up some meatballs: In a large bowl whisk two eggs lightly, add in salt, pepper, diced onion, grated parmesan, bread crumbs, chopped garlic combine well, add your ground pork, ground sausage & ground chuck...then just get in there with your hands and mix those ingredients very well. Then by eye just start pinchin' rollin' and placing on a bake sheet. Place in a pre-heated 325* oven for 30 minutes.
2While the meatballs are cooking start the "Gravy": In a large stock pot add 2tbs of olive oil and heat over med-high heat, add chopped onion and cook 5 minutes stirring often, add chopped garlic cook 2 minutes, add in you tomato paste and mix well, then add tomato puree & crushed tomatoes stir well, add your fresh basil and parsley, italian seasoning, crushed red pepper, red wine and your tomato sauce. stir well and reduce heat to low. When meatballs are ready remove from oven place on paper towel to absorb a little of the fat, then add to your gravy pot, stir well, hit with salt & pepper, replace lid and simmer 4 hours.
