My father was known for his spaghetti sauce. He died two years ago. It is not your typical sauce and is full of veggies and meats. MMMMM good.

This was awesome.. I cut the recipe in half because it was for just me and my bf and still had enough to send over to his parents! I didn't use the veggies because my boyfriend hates them. :( Bummer because the zucchini and mushrooms sound yummy! It was still great. I didn't have oregano and basil separate so I used italian seasoning and I had no bay leaves so I had to do without. This still turned out absolutely amazing and even though my boyfriend doesn't like tomatoes, he had 2 helpings! Sauce is GREAT on trio pasta (penne, bowtie, spirals)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This is basically a dump and pour recipe.
  2. Chop all the vegetables.
  3. Brown the ground beef in a skillet with the polish sausage and ham.
  4. Add vegetables to the meats in a large cooking pot.
  5. Simmer on warm while adding wine, spices, garlic and tomato products.
  6. Stir and bring to a boil. Simmer until reduced to the consistency you like. If in a hurry and it is too runny, add some flour like you would for gravy.
  7. Serve over your favorite pasta. This is a large recipe and is great frozen. We would store the extra sauce in quart size ziploc bags in the freezer. Noodles can also be stored in the freezer in water in a quart ziploc bag. To defrost, place sauce in a bowl in the microwave and use the defrost function. Noodles can be set in hot water to defrost. This recipe makes many meals.
