Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 large red onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes more if preferred
  • 50 ounces spaghetti sauce (two 25 ounce jars)
  • 1 pound spaghetti

Instructions

  • In heavy bottom stockpot over medium high heat, brown ground beef and pork with the onion. Cook, while stirring occasionally to evenly cook, about 15-20 minutes. During the last 5 minutes of cooking add the garlic and stir.
  • Add all of the spices to the meat and stir. I don't add salt because the spaghetti sauce has plenty.
  • Cover meat with sauce and heat over low until ready to serve.
  • Cook pasta (you know how, right?) and serve with meat sauce. This is a large recipe and I usually freeze half for a future dinner.
