I made this sauce a couple of days ago and it really turned out nice. I like the smoothness of the tomatoes and the more chuncky vegetables.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start with preparing all the vegetables and set them aside.
  2. Brown ground beef and sausage well and set aside.
  3. Saute all the vegetable in the olive oil until they are soft. Add the browned meat.
  4. Puree the tomatoes in a separate bowl and add to the vegetables/meat.
  5. Add the spices, salt, sugar and pepper.
  6. Let it simmer for about an hour.
  7. Add the wine and taste to see if more salt/pepper is needed.
  8. Simmer for another 30 minutes to an hour.
  9. Serve with mini farfalle or mini penne and some good parmesan cheese.

This makes a large batch of sauce! I'm not sure I'd use the bay leaves the next time I make this. Thank you for posting. Made for *PAC Fall 2007* game

Outstanding! Put all ingredients into my crockpot and cooked it on Low for 10 hours. Turned out great.
