  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 quarts Pasta Sauce, recipe follows
  • 3 quarts canned whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chiffonade
  • 1/2 cup small diced carrot
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups canned diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper


Step 1

Heat a large skillet over high heat until smoking hot. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the oil. Add the ground beef and Italian sausage, breaking up the pieces with a wooden spoon, and cook until brown, about 10 minutes. Add the onions and garlic and saute for 3 minutes. Transfer the browned-meat mixture to a strainer and discard the fat.

Step 2

Add the heavy cream to the drippings in the skillet and cook, scraping up the brown bits with the wooden spoon, until reduced by one quarter, 2 to 3 minutes. Reserve. Transfer the meat to a large pot. Add the Pasta Sauce and heavy cream mixture, bring to a simmer and cook until the flavors have melded, about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Combine the whole peeled tomatoes, extra-virgin olive oil, basil, carrot, oregano, onion and garlic in a large saucepan and pulse with an immersion blender. Bring the sauce to a simmer and stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Simmer until the carrots are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
