National Spaghetti Day and Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is National Spaghetti Day. 

Today would have been my Mom's Birthday. 

And we had my Mom's Meat Sauce with our spaghetti!

My Mom’s Meat Sauce

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
1/2 lb. sweet sausage
1/2 lb. hot sausage
4- 16 oz. cans crushed tomatoes
tomato paste
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. parsley
1 tbsp. basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup red wine

Heat olive oil in a large pot. Add garlic and chopped onions and saute for 5 minutes. Add all the meat. Cook over medium heat until browned. Add tomatoes and simmer covered for 1 to 2 hours. Add tomato paste to thicken, adding 1 tbsp. at a time as needed. Add herbs, salt, and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes. Add wine, cover, and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely. Remove any grease from the top of the sauce. Freeze extra sauce in containers or zip log bags.
