Homemade simplicity


Homemade-ish Pasta Sauce..warning, it makes a lot of sauce.

I had ingredients on hand that I needed to use and therefore tossed this meal together.

1 Pound Ground Beef (we use 93-97%)

1 Packages Johnsville Sweet Italian Sausage

2 Cans tomato sauce

1 Can tomato Paste

1 Can diced garlic tomatoes

3 Tablespoons Italian Seasonings

2 Cloves garlic, minced

1 Chopped Onion

1 Whole Jalapeno


Brown beef and sausage for 5 minutes in large fry pan. Add in onion and continue to brown meat thoroughly. Drain fat from pan, keep warm.

In Dutch oven (or large pot) mix all remaining ingredients. Slow cook for 1 hour, do not chop jalapeno, just place into pot whole unless you want the added heat.

Add in meat mixture, slow cook for 30 additional minutes.


Make Pasta, use meat sauce and garnish with parmesan cheese and parsley.
