INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 2
    tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 -10
    large mushrooms, sliced as thinly as possible
  • 1 -2
    clove garlic (depends on how garlicky you like it, I love garlic so I use a lot)
  • 1
    bottle red wine (good wine or cooking wine, the better the wine, the better the sauce)
  • 2
    tablespoons Italian spices (or if you have fresh Italian herbs on hand,use them to your taste, but it does turn out much better)
  • 1
    (28 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2
    (28 ounce) cans peeled crushed tomatoes (you can also use fresh tomatoes, but this makes the sauce really watery)
  • 14
  • 14
    cup romano cheese (not totally necessary, but the Parmesan is REALLY good)
  • 14 - 12
    teaspoon sugar (helps cut the acidity)
  • 12
    teaspoon salt (I've never really measured on a lot of the stuff, but it sounds about right.)

DIRECTIONS

  • In a skillet over medium high heat, sauté the mushrooms until thoroughly cooked, add the garlic, Italian seasonings, and half the bottle of wine.
  • Simmer until the wine has reduced by about half.
  • In a large pot, brown the sausage and hamburger together.
  • If you bought the sausage in links, remove it from the casings before cooking.
  • A little extra effort, and a bit messy, but it's worth it.
  • Drain.
  • After the meat is cooked, add all the tomato products, making sure that the tomato paste is thoroughly blended throughout.
  • When the mushrooms and wine have reduced enough, add them to the tomato-meat sauce.
  • Add the cheese, making sure to sprinkle it over the top or else it will clump up.
  • Sprinkle the sugar and salt over the top, stir well.
  • Simmer until you're ready to eat, stirring occasionally.
  • It's best when you've had it simmering all day, gives it a chance to reduce the watery liquid.
  • Serve with a nice big salad, and LOTS OF BREAD for mopping up the sauce.
  • And of course, lots of extra freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
  • MMMMMM,mmmmmm good!
