"I got this recipe 30-plus years ago from a neighbor's mother who lived in Italy. It is delicious and always well received. Sub all or part of the ground beef and sausage for turkey or chicken products to lighten the recipe."

  1. Heat tomato puree in a large pot over medium-low heat; simmer while prepared the remaining ingredients.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir hot Italian sausage, mild Italian sausage, and ground chuck until browned and cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove cooked sausage and chuck with a slotted spoon and transfer to the simmering tomato puree.
  3. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the same skillet used for browning meat until onions are lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer onion mixture to meat mixture.
  4. Stir water and tomato paste in the same skillet used for onion mixture over low heat until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes; add to the sauce in the pot. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, and parsley over the sauce; stir to combine. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 hours.

Very easy to put together from start to finish. I will say I foobarb'ed with the Italian Sausage links, I used Hot Turkey Polish Sausage instead. Even though it worked out well. I'll have to try to use the italian sausage links the next time. Ours had a bit of a bite to it was, just a little acidic not much just a tad. However, my littliest one said she like "stagetti night" and was prouf of it ;-) Thank you LindaT.

I followed this recipe exact. I used half of the spaghetti sauce last night to make a Hamburger Helper-kind of skillet meal (I really just cooked elbow macaroni, drained it and folded it into the sauce and sprinkled more fresh parmesan cheese on top) and froze the other half. The boys liked the combination of meats in this one, the hot italian sausage gave the sauce just enough heat without going overboard.

I made this sauce last night for dinner and it was very well received. I must admit, I usually just use jarred spaghetti sauce but I decided to give this a try and I'm so glad I did, it was super flavorful and more importantly, so easy and quick to make. Thanks for sharing Linda!
