Savor a full-bodied northern Italian meat sauce that's classically made with both beef and pork and also enhanced with wine.

Ingredients

1/2
lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
1/2
lb bulk mild Italian pork sausage
1
large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1
medium carrot, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
1
medium stalk celery, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
4
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic whole peeled tomatoes, undrained
1
can (15 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
1/2
cup dry red wine
1/4
cup chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
2
teaspoons dried basil leaves, crushed
2
teaspoons dried oregano leaves, crushed
1/2
teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)
1/4
teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart saucepan, cook beef, sausage, onion, carrot, celery and garlic over medium heat, stirring frequently, until beef and sausage are thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2 Stir in tomatoes, breaking up with spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • 3 Serve over cooked pasta as desired.

Expert Tips

You can use beef broth for the red wine.

Always cook pasta uncovered at a fast and continuous boil with plenty of water. This ensures that the pasta will be cooked evenly and won't stick together.
