  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • In a large pot, heat olive oil and butter. Then add onion and carrot and cook until onion is translucent about 3 minutes. Then add the garlic ground beef and ground pork to the pot. Cook on medium heat, breaking up the meat for 10 minutes or until the ground beef and pork are no longer pink.
  • Once the meat is cooked add in the crushed tomatoes, can of tomato paste, dried parsley, sugar, red pepper flakes, whole milk, and salt and pepper to taste (I like to add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper at a time).

Once the sauce has thickened pour it over pasta and garnish with fresh parsley, basil, and parmesan cheese.
