Pasta with Meat Sauce

Did you think it wasn't going to appear this week. I have mentioned the recipe for this sauce before but I was looking back at old posts and realized I have never posted the recipe!
Here we go...

Nonnie's Meat Sauce

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 med. 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
1- 6 oz cans tomato paste
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. parsley
1 tbsp. basil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup red wine

Heat olive oil in large pot. Add clove of garlic and chopped onions. Saute for 5 minutes. Add all meat. Cook over medium heat until browned. Meat does not need to be cooked through. Add tomatoes and simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Add tomato paste to thicken, add 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 the clove of garlic and let cool completely.
Remove any grease from top of sauce.
Freeze extra sauce in containers or zip log bags.

And Happy Birthday to Nicholas and Makena!
