My Mom's Meat Sauce Recipe

Thank you to my sister, Lenore, for reminding me that our Mom use to add chicken to her meat sauce. Funny how one addition can turn a sauce that I have been making for a long time into a whole other thing. Wow. Wow. Wow. The sauce was delicious. I don't usually add extra sauce to my dish of pasta. I could have just had the sauce with some bread. Heck hold the bread, the sauce was that good.

Ingredients -
Olive Oil
Ground Beef
Sweet Sausage
Crushed Tomatoes
Boneless Chicken Thighs
Tomato Paste

Method -
Brown the ground beef and sausage in large pot in hot olive oil. Drain fat from pot. Add tomatoes. Heat to simmer. Add chicken thighs. Cover pot and simmer for about 3 hours. Season pot with oregano, salt, pepper, basil and parsley. If the sauce seems thin add tomato paste. Simmer about a half hour more. Shred the chicken meat into small pieces.
Sorry about the lack of amounts and measurements. It is just one of those things you have to judge by eye.
