I make a double batch of this and freeze half of it for a quick dinner on another night. Prep time is approx. I never time myself cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large stockpot cook the ground beef, sausage, pepperoni, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, garlic, onion, carrots and celery. Cook until beef is no longer pink. Drain into a large colander to drain grease.
  2. To the large saucepot, add the mushrooms, tomato sauce, tomatoes, tomato paste, bouillon cubes, bay leaves, thyme, oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, black pepper, sugar, and beef broth and stir well. Pour the meat mixture into the pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 2 hours.

TOO highly seasoned for my taste (I think it was specifically the thyme). We ate it and my husband liked it but, based on my personal taste, I'd pick another recipe before making this one again.
