  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 lb. hot sausage
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 3 cans Italian style tomato paste
  • 15 oz. tomatoes (I use home canned)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil.

1 teaspoon each:

  • oregano
  • marjoram
  • rosemary
  • basil
  • 2 bay leaves

Cook onion and garlic in oil until onion is clear. Add meat and brown. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer on low for two hours. If you are going to be gone simmer in slow cooker. This makes a lot of sauce for more than two people so I freeze half. Cook any kind of pasta and pour hot sauce on top. I use this sauce with Mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, fat free ricotta, and cottage cheese to make lasagna.
