Nick’s Authentic Italian Spaghetti
Nick’s Authentic Italian Spaghetti comes straight from Italy. Tomatoes, basil, onions, and carrots flavor the two kinds of meat to make the perfect sauce!
Heat oil on medium heat in a large, deep skillet.
Add carrots and onion.
Saute a couple minutes, then add beef and pork.
When meat is browned, add tomatoes.
When tomatoes have softened and have started to release their juices (about 4-5 min) add basil, sugar, salt and pepper (if you are using cherry or grape tomatoes you can mash the them with a potato masher or fork to get them to pop and release all their juices).
Cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The longer you simmer, the better (ideally, 2+ hours).
In a large pot, cook spaghetti to al dente, drain completely and return to pot.
Add sauce to the spaghetti noodles and toss until noodles are covered.
