Pasta with Mom's Meat Sauce

This sauce was made on Sunday. I have 3 more zip lock bags of this sauce in the freezer. AKA "Money in the Bank."

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- 28 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. Meat does not need to be cooked through. Drain off as much of the fat from the bottom of the pan that can.

Add tomatoes and simmer covered for 30 minutes to 1 hour. 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. 

Remove clove of garlic and let cool completely.
