  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry red pepper
  • 3 ounces tomato paste
  • 2 cups canned tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil


Sauté the onion celery and garlic in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables and brown the beef and sausage meat in the remaining oil. Combine the meat and vegetables in a 3-quart saucepan, add remaining in-gredients, and simmer for 1-1/2 hours. Serve over cooked spaghetti. This meat sauce goes well with lasagna.
