Number of Servings: 12


    1 lb lean ground beef
    0.5 lb ground pork
    1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    0.5 glass red wine
    2 cups tomato sauce
    2 Tbsp tomato paste
    1 vegetable bouillon cube
    Fresh or dry spices: basil, rosmary, sage, bay leaf


Heat the oil in a medium size saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is soft. Add the beef and pork and cook until no longer pink. Add the wine and let it evaporate. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste and the bouillon cube. Add the spices (if fresh, tie together with a string). Cook over low heat for an hour or more.
Serves 12 or more (in Italy we do not use a lot of sauce on our pasta so I get about 24 servings).
