Number of Servings: 20


    2 medium raw sweet white onions (chopped)
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    8 oz fresh mushrooms (sliced)
    2-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    6-15oz can tomato sauce (Contadina)
    2-4 tbsp chopped sweet basil
    2-1 tbsp ground oregano
    2-1 tbsp granulated sugar
    2 lbs ground beef-lean
    2 lbs sweet Italian sausage


Empty tomato sauce into a 5 quart pan - begin heating on low-med heat. Stir in 4 tbsp basil, 1 tbsp oregano and 1 tbsp granulated sugar. While spiced tomato sauce is heating, saute sliced mushroom in 4 tbsp of olive oil. Once reduced, add entire pan into tomato sauce mixture - stir. In same pan, saute chopped onions and minced garlic in 4 tbsp of olive oil. Once translucent, stir into tomato sauce mixture. Begin browning ground beef mixed with remaining spices (4 tbsp basis, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 tbsp sugar). Drain well (do not rinse - it will wash of the spices added) add to tomato sauce mixture. Brown Italian sausage. While browning, smash/chop up sausage because it will clump. Drain and rinse, add to sauce mixture.

Simmer completed sauce for at least 1 hour. (If you have time 2 hours will mix the flavors together). Add additional spices to preferred taste. The sauce will have a sweet taste - if preferred the sugar can be removed. I add it to reduce the acidity of the sauce.

Cook preferred noodles per the package. Nutrition info does not include noodles.

Should make about 20-1 cup servings. This takes awhile to make so I make extra for freezing.
