  • Summary

    Packaged in quart-size Mason jars, this hearty and healthy sauce needs only a bow for perfect gift giving. This recipe will fill three 32-ounce containers. To make the gift into a complete dinner, consider including a box of pasta and a baguette or some crusty rolls. While this recipe makes plenty to freeze or give away, it can easily be cut in half if you prefer a smaller batch. Yields 3 quarts.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 1 pound turkey or pork sausage, casings removed
    • 1 medium onion, minced (or cut in half; see notes)
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 (28-ounce) cans diced tomatoes, with juice (I like petite diced)
    • 2 (6-ounce) cans tomato paste
    • 2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • Optional: 1/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves
