INGREDIENTS:

1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground Italian sausage

1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

2 tablespoons sugar

1½ teaspoons dried basil

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

½ teaspoon fennel seeds

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook beef, sausage, and onion over medium heat until mostly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain if desired. Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, basil, Italian seasoning, fennel, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more salt to taste if desired (I like an additional 2 teaspoons, but you may prefer less).
