DIRECTIONS

  • Brown ground beef, season to taste with salt and pepper, drain and set aside.
  • Cut link sausage up into meatball size pieces, brown, drain, and set aside. I use Thomasville Hot. If making sauce for lasagna, remove sausage from casings and brown with the ground beef.
  • Sauté garlic, onion, and bell pepper in olive oil, just until the onions are translucent.
  • Add meat, tomato sauce, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, herbs and spices, mushrooms, sugar, and wine. I use fresh mushrooms, and a red burgandy for a deeper earthy flavor. Omit mushrooms if making sauce for lasagna.
  • Simmer on medium low for at least one hour, stirring occasionally.
  • When ready to serve, mix corn starch with water and add to sauce, along with both cheeses to thicken.
  • When cheese is incorporated, and sauce has thickened, serve over your choice of pasta or use as a meat filling for lasagna.
