Mom’s Meat Sauce with Cheese Ravioli

First big pot of sauce of the season. I feel like I a squirrel storing away nuts for the winter. We had cheese ravioli with the sauce. The recipe was my mom’s and I love this sauce. It always tastes so familiar.

2 large onion, chopped

olive oil

2 # ground beef
1# ground pork
1# sausage links, optional
4 28 oz cans of crushed tomatoes

tomato paste




Method – Heat oil and saute onion until translucent. Add the meats. Cook until meat begins to brown. Drain off any fat from the pan. Add the crushed tomatoes. Cover and simmer for about 2 to 3 hours, depending on the type of meat that is used. If the sauce is thin add tomato paste. Season with parsley, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.

It was an enjoyable Sunday afternoon for all of us.
