DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the sausage links in half and place them into a 6 quart stock pot.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic, stir to coat; brown on medium heat stirring often to keep them from burning.
  • Add the tomato sauce, puree, basil, oregano and salt to the browned sausage and reduce heat to low; cover and slow simmer.
  • MEATBALLS.
  • Mix ground beef, breadcrumbs, milk, Worcestershire and eggs together in a bowl.
  • Shape meatballs into size of your choice and place into a shallow glass baking pan.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F and bake meatballs from 20-40 minutes depending upon size.
  • Add meatballs to the sauce and let simmer for 3 hours;stir occasionally and skim the fat off the top so the sauce is not greasy when it is done.
  • Add the tomato paste 1 hour before the sauce is done to thicken it up.
  • 1/2 hour after adding the tomato paste test the sauce; if it is too sweet from the paste add the beef base to counteract the sweetness--if not, leave this out and enjoy!
